Fire on 5th Avenue Burns Lunch


It was quite the hubbub on 5th Avenue today when two firetrucks descended upon a fire in a basement apartment on 5th Avenue at 44nd Street. Turns out the cry came over nothing more than burnt lunch, according to local Herb Hartel. Around 4pm, a half dozen firemen left the apartment rather more languidly then they went in. No one was injured, and it appears the incident left the apartment undamaged.

It may have been a false alarm, but it’s heartening to know that Ladder 114 stands ready to “Tally Ho” when bigger flames flare.
