The Fire Department is investigating two fires in the same building, emanating from the same apartment, only months apart.
The department 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 fire fighter sustained minor injuries and was taken to Roosevelt Hospital.
The fire appeared in an apartment on the sixth floor—the same spot where fire fighters had put out flames April 8, noted 1010 WINS, the AM news radio station.
The call for that fire was received at 12:32 a.m. It was under control by 12:57 a.m.
“Right now, both incidents are under investigation. Until that investigation is complete we won’t have anything further,” an FDNY spokesperson said.
