When I had a house listed in Rochester a couple of years ago I was told that a third-floor finished area was required to have more than one way of exiting in case of fire, hence the fire escape. When you think about it, it really makes sense. If you were on the second floor and a fire prevented you from using the stairs, you could jump from a window and probably be ok; however, if you were on the third floor and couldn't use the stairs, a jump would be pretty dangerous. It's all about safety.
