FDNY Firefighters Make Dramatic Rope Rescue at Fire 
A firefighter lowered from the roof of a burning Upper East Side apartment building rescued a man during a six-alarm fire that killed one person. The dramatic rescue came during the fire that destroyed an entire apartment building on East 93rd Street between First and Second avenues. Firefighters spotted the 81-year-old man hanging out his fifth window and yelling for help just before 3:30 a.m. Thursday. They tied a rope around firefighter Jim Lee of the New York City Fire Department's Rescue 1, who was battling the blaze from the roof, and lowered him down to rescue the man.
