At least three people were rescued from the Alfred E. Smith Houses this morning, after a fire broke out in either a sixth or eighth floor apartment (there are conflicting reports).  Firefighters were called to the scene, at 388 Pearl Street, around 7:45 a.m.  According to WCBS, one of those rescued had to crawl through a window and climb down a Fire Department ladder. The New York Red Cross responded, and provided assistance to four residents. We hear that State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver also has staff at Smith to offer translation services. There are no reports of life threatening injuries.
