WITHOUT hesitation, former Philadelphia Fire Commissioner Roger Ulshafer said that if he had to describe the emergency management of the Kensington warehouse blaze that claimed the lives of two firefighters in April, it would be "disgraceful. " Ulshafer made the statement during a City Council committee hearing Thursday to determine if proper safety controls were in place when a five-alarm fire destroyed the Thomas W. Buck Hosiery building. Lt. Robert Neary and firefighter Daniel Sweeney, of Ladder 10, died after a wall on a nearby building fell on them.

THE JOE PATERNO statue has been removed and, reportedly, is stored in a warehouse somewhere. What now? Lawrence Nowlan has an idea. The man who sculpted the Harry Kalas statue that sits inside Citizens Bank Park, wants to recycle the JoePa statue.

Fire tore through a vacant warehouse on the border of Northern Liberties and Fishtown early Tuesday, destroying the building, injuring one firefighter, and leading SEPTA to suspend service along the Market-Frankford El during the morning commute. The firefighter, who was not identified, was taken to Hahnemann University Hospital after hurting his back in a fall. He was released Tuesday afternoon, Executive Fire Chief Richard Davison said. The four-alarm blaze broke out a few blocks from the Piazza at Schmidts in Northern Liberties, which has become one of the city's thriving areas for nightlife and apartment-dwellers.

Bill Nikolopoulos awoke in darkness, made his way to a window in his apartment and laid eyes on an enormous wall of flames. It was about 2:30 Tuesday morning, and a fire was raging inside an abandoned warehouse on Front Street near Girard Avenue, about a block from his apartment. As thick arms of smoke curled around the nearby Market-Frankford El, Nikolopoulos turned and looked at his sleeping 9-year-old grandson. "I got ready to put my pants on and get him outside," he said.

A year after suspicious blazes tore through the vacant hulks of three former industrial complexes in Camden, spreading fear that a serial arsonist was at large and prompting federal investigators to descend on the city, the views of the sites anger or please neighbors, depending on where they are located. Charred wood and other debris remain piled up steps from Nina Thomas' home near the former Howland Croft, Sons & Co. garment factory in the Waterfront South section, which went up in flames on June 11 last year.

A story Thursday on a memorial service for Lt. Daniel Sweeney and Capt. Robert Neary, two firefighters killed in the Kensington warehouse blaze in April, wrongly identified a speaker at the event. Tim McShea, vice president of the Philadelphia Fire Fighters and Paramedics Union, Local 22, spoke on behalf of union president Bill Gault. In addition, it was Diane Neary, widow of Robert Neary, with whom McShea, not Gault, had a telephone conversation. The Inquirer wants its news report to be fair and correct in every respect, and regrets when it is not.

Almost two months after a Kensington fire claimed the lives of two Philadelphia firefighters, family members and the firefighter community are still searching for answers. "We come today trying to — still trying to — understand the why. And, for me at least, the most frustrating part of that is trying to know or understand what you cannot know or understand," Mayor Nutter said during an all-faiths gathering for fallen firefighters Capt. Robert Neary and Lt. Daniel Sweeney on Wednesday morning.

Online retail giant Amazon.com will invest $130 million in New Jersey, build two warehouses, and bring 1,500 full-time jobs to the state, Gov. Christie announced Wednesday. In return, the Seattle-based Internet retailer will collect the state's 7 percent sales tax from New Jersey residents who buy online starting in July 2013. Christie said at a news conference that the tax collection would bring an estimated $30 million to $40 million a year to the state. The deal is contingent on Amazon receiving tax incentives to finance construction of the warehouses in cities that were not named.
