Shortly after 2100 hours on Wednesday, December 27th, Station 60 units were dispatched to Billie Ellis Lane on the reported apartment fire. Crews arrived to find heavy fire through the roof on the Alpha side of the occupied multiple dwelling and the second alarm was transmitted. Multiple aerial master streams and handlines were placed in service to hold the fire to two apartment units, while crews performed extensive search efforts. Many thanks to all who assisted during the incident through the bitter weather and icy conditions.
Please keep an eye out for ways to assist the residents of the building who were displaced by this tragic event, as they need your help!

This morning, Station 60 responded to Princeton Day School for the reported smoke condition within the building. LT 603, who is a teacher at PDS, investigated and confirmed heavy smoke coming from a utility room within the occupied school and struck the first alarm. The fire, later confirmed to be from the elevator motor, was knocked down quickly with no extension. Crews overhauled the area and undertook extensive ventilation operations prior to permitting occupancy of the building. Many thanks to the large number of resources who responded in on the assignment.
Make sure to come out to JazzFeast in Palmer Square today, Station 60 units will be standing by until 3pm!
