All Hands used for Another Basement

     

Wednesday, March 11, 2015 1700 Hrs Just after 1700 hours Bronx Communications notified both companies and the battalion to the address 829 East 226 Street for a reported fire in the building. Both companies arrived to find a light smoke condition but quickly located an escalating fire in the rear of the building in the boiler room. A hand line was stretched off Engine 63 to the seat of the fire while Battalion 15 transmitted the 10-75 for fire in the basement of a 25x60 2-Story flat roof frame MD. A second line was stretched to the first floor after determining the fire was extending upwards. Hazmat 1 was also put on the assignment because the fire was started by a leaking oil gun from the boiler which had flooded the basement with home heating oil. Thankfully the fire was knocked down and extinguished before dangerous and explosive oil vapors compromised the atmosphere for members operating inside. The incident was brought under control in approximately one hour and companies were released soon after. Battalion 15 had operations and Division 7 had command of the fire. Engine 63 and Battalion 15 also responded to another All Hands just after noon today at 3031 Barnes Avenue. Fire was held to the first floor of a 3 -Story Brick, a building in which we had a 2nd alarm over the winter. A night members remember as the war tour.
