Nobody said it had anything to do with VoIP. A few moments in Google
news found this explanation in the NY Post:

Officials said a neighbor a block away from the blaze mistakenly gave
the 911 operator his own address -- sending the first wave of
firefighters to the wrong apartment house. Twenty-five units
altogether responded to a flood of calls but only one went to the
wrong address -- a not uncommon situation, officials said.
