FDNY Responds to Fire at One World Trade Center

NEW YORK (AP) —- Firefighters responded to the 89th floor of One World Trade Center on Saturday to help construction workers put out a smoldering fire in some wooden decking.

The fire was a small one and never progressed to the point where it posed a threat to life or property, but its location on the site of the Sept. 11 attacks made it anything but routine.

The New York City Fire Department said it got the call for help at 7:15 a.m. Workers at the unfinished tower used fire extinguishers to put out the burning plywood themselves, but firefighters were still on the scene wetting down the area an hour later.
