High-rise building owner to step up repair effort after fire

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The city of Pittsburgh has posted a condemnation notice on a Pittsburgh high-rise due to damage from an electrical fire last month, but the building owner is vowing to bring in even more people to hasten repairs. Fire officials said the May 19 blaze at the 44-story Gulf Tower was confined to the basement although smoke could be seen rising from the roof from a ventilation shaft. Building owner Rugby Realty said it has more than 200 people working to repair the damage, and chief operating officer Larry Walsh said officials plan to increase that number to 300.
