False alarm: No fire at World Trade Center
World Trade Center
NEW YORK — An emergency call reporting a fire had broken out at 1 World Trade Center, the 104-story building being built at the site of the former twin towers, was false, according to a authorities.
FOX5 New York initially reported that the emergency call came just before 6 a.m. MST, reporting a fire on the 88th floor of the skyscraper. Other reports stated nearly 90 firefighters responded to the call.
But approximately 30 minutes later, Port Authority spokesman Steve Coleman told CNN the FDNY arrived on scene and found there was no fire.
President Obama, who will be visiting Colorado today, signed a beam that was recently raised and attached to the building.
