        I don't know how much basis in reality the problems in that
movie had, but I do know this:

        1) I've seen many more referrals to large water tanks built
into skyscrapers
        2) it must be a nightmare to try and fight any kind of large
fire in those types of buildings

        As for the water tanks in the movie, if I remember correctly
they really didn't come into the story until towards the end and I
believe that Steve McQueen does end up rupturing them so that the
water spills down the building into the fire.
