The Fire Department is investigating two fires in the same building, emanating from the same apartment, only months apart.
The department most recently responded to a report about a fire at 100 W. 72nd St. and Columbus Avenue June 9. The call was received at 7:11 a.m., and fire fighters got the blaze under control about a half-hour later. A firefighter sustained minor injuries and was taken to Roosevelt Hospital.
The fire broke out in an apartment on the sixth floor—the same spot where firefighters put out flames April 8, noted 1010 WINS, the AM news radio station.
“Right now, both incidents are under investigation. Until that investigation is complete we won’t have anything further,” an FDNY spokesperson said.
