Bringing Down The House: The Inside Story Of Si... High Quality



143. Together with the patrimony of nature, there is also an historic, artistic and cultural patrimony which is likewise under threat. This patrimony is a part of the shared identity of each place and a foundation upon which to build a habitable city. It is not a matter of tearing down and building new cities, supposedly more respectful of the environment yet not always more attractive to live in. Rather, there is a need to incorporate the history, culture and architecture of each place, thus preserving its original identity. Ecology, then, also involves protecting the cultural treasures of humanity in the broadest sense. More specifically, it calls for greater attention to local cultures when studying environmental problems, favouring a dialogue between scientific-technical language and the language of the people. Culture is more than what we have inherited from the past; it is also, and above all, a living, dynamic and participatory present reality, which cannot be excluded as we rethink the relationship between human beings and the environment.

At least three firefighters remained in serious condition at Staten Island University North Hospital on Friday night.Officials didn\u0027t detail the injuries, but we know two of the firefighters were trapped for some time, and a third was treated after something fell on his head and knocked his mask off.Staten Island University North Hospital is the borough\u0027s regional burn center, and because of that, we\u0027re told almost two dozen others were taken there, but they have minor injuries.In audio from a radio call, an FDNY member can be heard saying, \"We just got another mayday from another company inside. Try to get him out guys.\"There were tense moments as firefighters fought to put out the flames at 88 Shotwell Ave. They ended up fighting for their lives.\"As the firefighters were inside searching for occupants, the windows failed and the wind blew the fire intensely into the building right at the firefighters. Two of them became trapped by fire,\" FDNY Chief of Department John Hodgens said.Hodgens says one made their way to a second-floor balcony and jumped off; another transmitted a mayday signal that he was in distress on the same floor.He says Squad Company 8 and Engine 168 were able to rescue the lieutenant.But then, Hodgens says, \"The nozzle man of Engine 168 was working very intense to put the fire out, understanding what the situation was, and he became a little bit disoriented, as well. He got hit in the head by, by maybe falling plaster, and it knocked his mask, his face piece off his face a little bit, and he took a good amount of smoke.\"Friday night, the union for firefighters said the closest firehouse, Engine 167, was closed Friday due to scheduled firefighter medical exams. The president said in part, \"New Yorkers should know that every company is unnecessarily closed four days a year because the city has been unwilling to pay the overtime to replace the staff that has been scheduled for medicals.\"He claimed replacements at that firehouse would have lead to a faster response and possibly less injuries. He also said a responding engine company was involved in an accident on the way to the scene.CBS2 contacted the FDNY for comment. A spokesperson referred us to Friday afternoon\u0027s press briefing, where the FDNY said units were on scene in under four minutes but did not mention the firehouse closure.

I can\u0027t believe it,\" neighbor Anthony Fazio said.The FDNY says the fire started in the space between the rear extensions of the two units in the duplex. Vinny Pellizzi noticed smoke from the first floor in the back of the home.\"I wish I could\u0027ve grabbed more, but you saw how fast it spread, so that was a difference between... All I had was my phone, the dog and my keys. That was it,\" he said.Mayor Eric Adams also surveyed the damage caused by the four-alarm fire. Part of the home\u0027s rear extension collapsed. The siding on the duplex\u0027s two neighboring homes also melted.Fazio, who lives across the street, first moved to the neighborhood about 30 years ago after he lost his home to a fire in Richmond Hill, Queens.\"I pray for them. That\u0027s all I can do because it\u0027s a horrible thing, believe me, to live someplace else,\" he said.The Pellizzi family, who lives on the right side of the duplex, says they\u0027re just happy they\u0027re OK. Vinny Pellizzi\u0027s mom, Donna, looked back and said she raised her son in that home but says slowly but surely she\u0027ll replace what she\u0027s lost.The family got help from the Red Cross.The cause of the fire is still under investigation.","mainEntityOfPage":"@type":"WebPage","@id":"#post-update15","@type":"BlogPosting","url":"https:\/\/www.cbsnews.com\/newyork\/live-updates\/multi-alarm-fire-collapse-reported-on-staten-island-at-least-1-firefighter-treated\/#post-update14","headline":"Investigation underway into cause of fire","datePublished":"2023-02-18T02:43:52+0000","dateModified":"2023-02-18T02:43:00+0000","author":["@type":"Person","familyName":"Keleshian","givenName":"Kristie","name":"Kristie Keleshian"],"image":"@context":"https:\/\/schema.org","@type":"ImageObject","height":630,"width":1200,"url":"https:\/\/assets3.cbsnewsstatic.com\/hub\/i\/r\/2023\/02\/17\/48bdac9a-3294-4d24-857f-d3e230120bb8\/thumbnail\/1200x630\/3932d29f62c5e268db9af00e68246aca\/si-house-fire-nc-hi-res-still-14-29-4310.jpg","publisher":"@context":"https:\/\/schema.org","@type":"Organization","@id":"https:\/\/www.cbsnews.com\/newyork\/","name":"CBS New York","foundingDate":"1948-05-06","sameAs":["https:\/\/www.cbsnewyork.com\/","https:\/\/www.facebook.com\/CBSNewYork\/","https:\/\/www.instagram.com\/cbsnewyork\/","https:\/\/twitter.com\/CBSNewYork","https:\/\/youtube.com\/CBSNewYork\/","https:\/\/en.wikipedia.org\/wiki\/WCBS-TV"],"logo":["@context":"https:\/\/schema.org","@type":"ImageObject","height":60,"width":600,"url":["https:\/\/www.cbsnews.com\/assets\/partner\/google\/cbs-newyork-600x60.png","https:\/\/www.cbsnews.com\/assets\/partner\/google\/cbs-newyork-darkbg-600x60.png"]],"url":"https:\/\/www.cbsnews.com\/newyork\/","articleBody":"Crews were still going in and out of the home Friday night, investigating what exactly started the fire.
