Cables Cited in Tower Fire
Published: November 21, 1991

A fire that forced the evacuation of several floors at One World Trade Center on Tuesday night was caused by overheated electrical cables on the 93d floor, the Fire Department said yesterday. Tom Kelly, the deputy commissioner for public information, said the cables could have caught fire because of an electrical overload or because they had rubbed against each other. The cables ran through a closet opposite the elevators and provided power for lighting. Most of the building was empty when the fire was discovered. Windows on the World, the restaurant on the 107th floor, closed early because of the blaze, although diners inside when the fire broke out were not told that there was a problem.
