The New York TimesThe Lively Morgue

Dec. 4, 1957: Flames billowed four stories high at Broadway and 40th Street, after an explosion in a pit where men were working on a gas main. Three sustained minor burns; one of them, Hugh Harrity of the Bronx, had singed eyebrows and eyelids, but refused treatment. The spectacle was blamed on a lighted cigarette. Photo: The New York Times
