Jesus!! People here have some pretty dramatic fantasies. Highrises aren't all that vulnerable to fire. They have very good firewalls. So as a precaution, you'd really only have to go down a few floors to be safe. There was a fire in an apartment in a New York skyscraper about five years ago. It looked dramatic, but it was confined to just that apartment.
