Williamsburg Photos du Jour: Two Alarm Fire On Bedford Avenue
Those of you who are wondering what the ruckus was on Bedford Avenue was today, a two alarm fire was reported at 187 Bedford Avenue at 11:21 this morning. The source of this fire has been determined by our Bravest to be electrical in nature. It started inside the floor between the second and third stories and the apartment from hence it originated was currently unoccupied. The latter unfortunately delayed its discovery.
Four apartments have been rendered uninhabitable; two more have sustained damage to their front doors and sport some water and smoke damage (as seen below) as well. The Red Cross was on hand so as to render assistance to those displaced and Deputy Inspector Hurson personally delegated an officer to ensure the safety of the tenants whose front doors are awaiting new locks.
The good news is no one— be they two-legged or otherwise— was injured!
