Oh? 

I'm thinking of that panel office fire in NYC, circa 1970. 
It was the 212 toll switch building.

Or do they mean the building as well as the contents?

(I recall it as panel as much of the lube applied over the years
had soaked into the paper/cotton cabling; this proved very hard
to fully extinguish.)
