I feel sorry for people in this situation. What happens to their personal belongings? Not so much the people on the third floor whose things were obviously burnt up, but the people in the rest of the building. How long do they have to stay out of the building?

Also OT: I just have to know. Is Eutaw pronounced like Utah?

If the bus recording is correct, it’s a lot like Utah, but with the broader “aw” sound instead of the “ah” at the end.

I'd never say House Tan for Houston though.
That's a purely NYC thing.

Only for the street in lower Manhattan, because that's its name.
