FIRE COMMISSIONER SALVATORE J. CASSANO ISSUED THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT REGARDING TODAY'S DECISION TO OVERTURN THE BLACK SUNDAY VERDICT

"Today's decision hopefully does not send the wrong message to those who seek to profit by creating illegal occupancies. The fact is, people continue to die in fires because of illegally constructed partitions that block egress."
