Yeah, I didn't really believe their "whole building" claim; high rise
fires usually only result in specific floors/areas being cut and
alerting one above and one below. Since this seems to be a
fire-on-the-floor issue (aren't these relatively rare?) vs. utility
vault, I'd be very interested to know what kind of fire suppression was
in place and how effective it was.

As I check now they've redacted the whole building claim and are now
saying 7th and 8th floors.
