Mayor Michael Nutter accused some in the mainly Liberian immigrant neighborhood of spreading misinformation when he was confronted by claims from community members that firefighters were slow or inept in responding to Saturday's blaze. “I will not tolerate under any set of circumstances, incorrect information, allegations, innuendo or lies suggesting that members of the Philadelphia Fire Department did anything less than perform admirably in their service," Nutter told reporters on Monday. Patrick Sanyeah, a Liberian native whose 4-year-old son and newborn infant were among the four children who perished, called the mayor's remarks disrespectful.
