he death toll in the massive high-rise fire in London this week is now up to 17, and that number is expected to increase. Experts believed cosmetic siding that was recently added to the building's exterior may have fueled the blaze.
Locally, we wanted to find out how the Rochester Fire Department prepares for high-rise scenarios. While not a common sight, so far this year, they've dealt with three of them.
RFD Capt. Edward Kuppinger said, "we have a lot of responses for calls, but it's been a slightly higher than normal year as far as number of fires we've had in high rises."
