ENGINE 67
FDNY Manhattan-- Engine 67 on a smoke scare.
Northeast Bravest-- On our way in on RT 78 heard a garage fire going in Plainfield diverted off and grabbed some shots of the guys finishing up. After that stopped by Orange Street in Newark and waited a short time, Kearney Job came in. After driving around in circles for a brief period the job was u/c. Newark had a couple of bells but turned out to be nothing so decided to drive into Upper Manhattan. The alarm came in on 155st for smoke on the #2 and 3 floors of an apartment complex, Smoke Grenade. All the action seemed to be down in Brooklyn but had to make my way back into NJ for the night shift. Took the turnpike south into New Brunswick where I spent a short time but no bells came in.
