Fire in Greenpoint

POST #    1534

Yesterday, there were a bunch of fire trucks in my neighborhood and I didn't know what it was until I went outside (they were outside for at least an hour before I ventured out). Apparently, there was a fire on Manhattan Avenue, not far from my apartment. A fire anytime of year is horrible, but during a cold time and with snow falling has to be the worst. It looked like everyone from the building was evacuated. Luckily, emergency services were there to take care of those misplaced.

I saw that same fire, parked my car, got out the camera and was shuffling some new batteries when this older polish woman came up and tried to fight me for the parking spot. Really random.

Was this the Brooklyn fire where the firefighter died?

Very tragic.

My boyfriend was at the Muffins Bagels Donuts place (right near there) that morning, and came back and told me about the trucks. He also said some old guy came running into the store yelling "THERE'S A DOG OUTSIDE THAT HAD A HEART ATTACK" and another guy answering him "NO, IT GOT HIT BY A CAR, IT NEEDS CPR". My bf did not know what to make of it and for a while thought that was what all the trucks were there for (until we saw smoke).
