Residents of an apartment building at Ocean Avenue and Avenue W were forced from the warmth of their apartments and into a frigid, 20-degree night, as firefighters battled a fifth floor blaze.
Firefighters rushed to the scene of an apartment building fire at 2662 Ocean Avenue shortly after 11:00 p.m. yesterday, extinguishing a blaze that, fortunately, left no one injured.
The fire broke out on the fifth floor of the six-story building, but damage extended to the fourth and sixth floors as well, the FDNY told Sheepshead Bites. The blaze was brought under control 50 minutes later.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
