"Our lights flickered a bit. The fire went down the wire about 12 stories and then stopped," the resident reported. About five fire trucks arrived--no injuries were reported.
Asked on Twitter (see below) by photographer Erika Clark, "Is that much fire normal for a crane removal?" Forest City Ratner spokeswoman responded "no there was an issue that was quickly resolved."
Maybe it was, but it was certainly unnerving for residents, and another argument for a real-time source of explanation and oversight. Note the flash on the video at bottom.
