1 ladder has been special called above the fourth alarm at 23:05.
Units were dispatched to 978 Southern Boulevard in Bronx for a reported fire. On arrival a row of taxpayers were burning. Initial companies stretched lines to the fire building, began a search and began to open up. The fire continued to spread requiring a 2nd alarm.
A 3rd alarm was then requested as the fire continued to grow and tower ladders were ordered set up. Additional arriving units were put to work securing water sources and stretching additional lines. The fire continued to grow requiring the transmission of a 4th alarm.
4th alarm units are in staging and the fire is reported to be “doubtful” – meaning the current assignment may not be able to hold the fire in check.
