Fire in a 2-Story Frame

     

Tuesday, January 27, 2015 1715 Hours At 1715 hours, Bronx Communications sounded Box 3697 for fire on the second floor of 740 East 227 street between White Plains Road and Barnes Avenue. Within minutes, numerous calls were being received which prompted Fire Alarm Dispatchers to load the box. Ladder 39 arrived just ahead of Engine 63 and transmitted the 10-75 for heavy fire in the rear of the building. Battalion 15 gave the All Hands on arrival and requested an extra engine and truck due to initial water problems and a good fire conditions impinging on exposure 4. As Engine 63 began stretching the initial line, other members searched for a positive water source. A 10-70 (water relay) was initially given but quickly rescinded after a serviceable hydrant was found further down the block. 3 lines were stretched off the engine while Ladder's 39 and 32 conducted primaries of the fire building. The fire was brought probably will hold in just over 30 minutes and under control shortly after. Division 7 had command of the fire.
