One man was killed and another was injured in a three-alarm high-rise apartment fire in midtown Manhattan on Sunday, authorities said.
Firefighter spokesman Danny Glover said the fire was reported shortly after 11 a.m. Sunday in an apartment on the 20th floor of a building at 43rd Street and 10th Avenue. About 150 firefighters battled the fire and brought it under control shortly before 1 p.m., Glover said.
It was not immediately clear what caused the fire, which spread heavy smoke to several apartments around the affected apartment, Glover said.
Police said one of the victims, 27-year-old Daniel McClung, was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. The other victim, a 32-year-old male, was hospitalized in stable condition, police said.

Miami group blasts John Edwards for working with Danny Glover
June 21, 2007
A Miami-based group called Independent Venezuelan American Citizens lambasted John Edwards for campaigning with actor Danny Glover.
...if I were that guy, I would use “Daniel” instead of Danny.
Those 2 links I just gave no longer work. I just checked.
He obviously has failed to make the city’s skyscraper apartments safe enough.
Oh, you meant as NYC Public Advocate? I actually don’t know enough about what he did in that role to comment. I thought you meant as the newly elected mayor he didn’t do enough to prevent high-rise fires.
