On Saturday evening February 23, 2008 a fire was reported in a 4-story apartment building at 2380 Park Avenue. At 19:19 hours the 1st alarm assignment of Engines 23, 19; Trucks 23, 19; RAT 3; Districts 1, 2; Squad 14 and a Rescue unit were dispatched. Engine 23 arrived and reported smoke showing. The conditions seen in this photo can be deceptive! The fire is burning in the first floor apartment that is to the left of the doorway where the firefighters are making entry. Heavy amounts of smoke were present in the stairwell and apartments above the fire. With the smoke venting from the 4th floor it appears that the fire may be on the upper floors.
