Firehouse

June 2012

An early-afternoon four-alarm fire ripped through four buildings in the Morris Park section of the Bronx, NY, on April 14, 2012. With heavy fire venting from the cockloft, the building suffered a second-floor collapse that briefly trapped two firefighters. They were not seriously hurt.
