19. Frank Campagna, FDNY experienced explosions in WTC1
Frank Campagna, FDNY Ladder 11 in Manhattan

We just kept walking up. As far as we knew, there were no planes or anything coming in.
We just knew there was a fire up there. Any other explosions that we felt from inside were maybe extra machinery or something like that.
Those were the words that we were getting.

So we just kept going up the stairwell. We got up to about the 17th floor, and we felt another pretty big explosion.

We got up to about the 28th, 30th floor, and we were taking another break. There was an office or we had a whole floor full of people. A chief came down from a floor above with another company and said everybody evacuate, everybody out now. We had to switch staircases.
I believe the staircase we were in, there was no way down it anymore on the lower level. There was word that it had been taken out; we don't know what from.

So I believe we headed out along the wall of the Trade, and I believe 18 followed us out. That was it. It came down on top of us.
