This fire, which killed one person and left 31 others in hospital, happened in the office building next to mine today. Frightening to watch people throwing chairs through their office windows and clambering out into the snow...
it sounded awful. *hug* were you evacuated?
No, we were fine; apart from a tendency for people to suddenly familiarise themselves with the location of the emergency stairwell (we've only been in this building for a week), there wasn't any direct effect on us.
It turns out that I do know (if only via LJ) someone who was actually working in that building when the fire started; she's fine, but I'm even more spooked now.
I worked on the 5th floor of that bldg for 3 years,
up until April. Eeek. Glad you're ok.

Glad your building wasn't affected, honey.
