Three NOFD firefighters--George Forstall, Jr., Anton Puderer, Jr., and William Aymami--died fighting a Christmas morning fire in 1971. They, and several of their brother firemen, were on the balcony of a vacant building in the 1300 block of Dryades Street when the front wall of the structure collapsed. This photograph shows the scene two days after that disaster.
