Three workers were confirmed dead after a fire broke out in Thanksgiving Tower's garage. They were working 35 feet deep in an HVAC system tank when the fire started. Dallas Fire and Rescue was able to evacuate almost 2,800 others from the building, but could not get to the workers because of fire and heavy smoke, spokesman Jason Evans said.
The workers were subcontractors for Best Mechanical Inc., a Seagoville air conditioning management and repair company. Cheri Torres, a spokeswoman for the company, said they had safety equipment and evacuation procedures.
