Malfunctioning Power Strip to Blame for High-Rise Fire That Killed Gay NYC Man


This morning we reported on a tragic high-rise fire over the weekend in Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen neighborhood which took the life of Daniel McClung (above left) and critically injured his husband Michael Todd Cohen.

City fire marshalls now report that the fire, which broke out on the 20th floor, was caused by a malfunctioning power strip, possibly connected to a Christmas tree.
