  • Description

    Water from New York fire fighters' hoses froze as they fought to get a warehouse fire under control in the Bronx, Feb 2, fifteenth day of sub-zero temperatures in the City.

    The day was New York's coldest for nearly 18 years with the temperature sinking to 2 degrees below zero.

    Hampered by the cold, fireman found their task worsening as the fire on the second storey of the warehouse, used as a furniture repository, spread to threaten neighbouring buildings.

    A dense pall of smoke turned the air into a virtual death trap.
