STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – Ten FDNY units responded Friday night to a fire at a private home in Great Kills.
The incident was reported at around 8 p.m. inside a two-story residence at 4185 Hylan Blvd.
The official cause of the all-hands, one-alarm fire is currently under investigation, but it is believed to have originated on the first floor, Battalion Chief Kenneth Danielsen told the Advance/SILive.com.
“We had the fire out in about five minutes, but when we first arrived here there were flames blowing out of both front windows,” Danielsen said. “It then started coming out the front door.”
One firefighter sustained non-serious injuries as well, Danielsen confirmed.
NYPD officers blocked off and diverted traffic from a large section of Hylan Boulevard, stretching from Armstrong Avenue to Wiman Avenue.
