Lloyd Mitchell has been busy out in New York, capturing two 5 Alarm Fires recently. Â One of the Fires was in Queens, New York and the other in Brooklyn, New York. Â Some of Lloyd’s photographs and video of the Brooklyn 5 Alarm Fire are here. Â As always, great job Lloyd and thank you very much for sharing. Â Descriptions of the fire can also be found below.
“Queens firefighters responded to a five alarm fire in a 1 story commercial building at DDK ProCleaners in Long Island City, Queens on Sunday, April 3rd. Â Two tower ladders and multiple handlines were stretched and operated.” Â
“A five alarm fire consumed a bakery at 640 Parkside Avenue in Flatbush, Brooklyn just before 11:00 P.M. Sunday April 3rd. Just hours after a five alarm fire in Long Island City, Queens.Â The fire was fueled by the 1 story commercial building storing large oil tanks. Â The oil tanks caused grey and black smoke to float into the Flatbush night sky. Â 4 tower Ladders and Â 3 handlines were used to put out the fire.”
