The fire brought heavy smoke to many areas of the building, from the fourth floor to the eighth floor, forcing many of the residents to evacuate the building into the snowy afternoon. The difficulty of fighting the fire could be seen by this photo, in which firefighters pull hose on the icy, snowy sidewalk.
