Firefighters responded to multiple phone calls for a house fire at 137-11 131st Ave. and units arrived to find heavy fire and smoke in a garage just after 6:40 p.m. on March 29.

The blaze quickly spread into the first and second floor of a private, two-story house as the FDNY went to a second alarm at 7:12 p.m., bringing 25 units and 106 firefighters and EMS to the scene, according to the FDNY.
