Councilman Robert Holden took to Instagram to share his thanks to the FDNY.
“The dread we feel seeing a fire like this two-alarm blaze on Grand Ave. this morning is matched only by the impressive, swift action from our first responders,” Holden wrote. “I thank the more than 70 @FDNY firefighters who put this out, as well as EMTs and @NYPD 104th Precinct officers who kept everyone safe. Our first responders truly are the benchmark for every city in the world.”
Wednesday’s fire comes a month after a manhole fire had broken out and spread to a Dunkin’ nearby on the corridor.
The fire broke out at a Dunkin’ located at 69-08 Grand Ave. on Aug. 21.
That incident required 12 units with 60 firefighters to place the fire and left several businesses along the street without power for hours, according to FDNY.
