“We’re safe, and we were very, very impressed with the work of the NY Fire Department. It was close to the south floor of our building and it was fully involved by the time they got here,” Tom said.

“We were awakened by their presence, frankly. Our dogs began to bark and we realized, we looked down in our elevator area and the fire department was coming up.”

Two firefighters were reportedly injured and treated after rushing to put out the fire.

He said that the owners of the unit that caught on fire were a “wonderful family,” and “it could’ve been a lot worse. It was a great property loss for the family.”

“No damage to our unit. We got a little smoke. Really, it’s a cautionary tale about living in the danger of fire. But thank God for the New York Fire Department.”
