Why the speculation at the end?Clearly, a decision was made to fight this fire, despite many of the arguments used in the case of WTC7 applying (I've bolded the key parts). Apparently, this building, even though it was in the process of being demolished, was worth risking lives to save. I suppose that might have been due to the hardwon lesson of 9/11, namely, that leaving fires unfought can lead to total collapse?
Btw, this was referenced as source for the wikipedia text you quoted:
In a highly unusual move, three ranking New York Fire Department officials were yanked from their posts Monday after the mayor and fire commissioner said they appear to be responsible for information lapses that led to the deaths of two firefighters at the former Deutsche Bank building.
a) this building did not collapse from the fire, you are moving even further off-topic with your speculation,
b) obviously this decision was flawed, and thus is a bad example for best practices.
