Remembering the Great Williamsburg Roof Tar Fire of '07

When the Toll Brothers Northside Piers erupted in a great smoky fire late this morning, it resulted in a flood of emails and photos into our inbox. As it turned out, the fire was sparked by a kettle heating roof tar and the blaze, while very smoky and visible for miles, was extinguished quickly. Nonetheless, we thought we'd commemorate the Conflagration on Kent by running some of the pics we received from readers.
