2nd Alarm Transmitted in Woodlawn

     

Monday, January 11, 2016 approx 170 At approximately 1700 hours Bronx Communications sounded Box 3957 for the reported structure fire at 335 East 236 street. Within minutes both companies were turning onto the block with structural smoke in the area. Upon hearing the radio transmissions of first due companies Battalion 15 promptly gave Bronx the urgent for the 10-75. Engine 63 and Ladder 39 arrived to find fire on the first and second floors of a 2 1/2 story 25x75 wood frame multi-family home. Engine 63 quickly started a line to extinguish fire on the first floor while next arriving engines stretched a line to the floor above. Ladder 19 acting 39 gained access to the basement to find a small pocket of fire where the fire had originated from plumbers sweating copper tubing which had ignited in a pipe chase and was running a void into the attic. This fire was quickly extinguished with a can while other trucks began opening up on upper floors. Upon the arrival of Division 7 , a second alarm was transmitted for heavy fire running the walls and attic space of the home. Four hand lines as well as many additional trucks were used to bring this stubborn fire under control. Division 7 had the command and the fire was brought under control in an hour and 29 minutes.
