9 fires in 2 months before the fatal one
District Attorney Robert Morgenthau’s office prepared a report, which included brief descriptions of nine small fires at 130 Liberty St. in the weeks leading up to the fatal fire. The contractors, Bovis Lend Lease and John Galt Corp., as well as two agencies, the Lower Manhattan Development Corp. and the Dept. of Buildings all knew about some of the fires.
