Fathers Day Part 2-An Angel whispered in his ear “It’s going to blow”


FF Joe Vosilla joins Danny on this episode to talk about the Fathers Day Fire in June of 2001. Joe was assigned the Outside Vent Position in Ladder 116. He was working right along side FF’s Harry Ford and John Downing on the basement windows that were sealed up. Joe describes hearing a voice immediately before the explosion that took out half the building. The voice caused him to pull his head out of the basement window and turn his back to the wall. Had he not done that he would hae taken the full force of the blast in his face and chest.
