Two-Alarm Fire Damages Two Buildings On 18th Street


333 18th Street Fire Ladder

A two-alarm fire broke out at about 4:40pm today on the first floor, spreading to the second floor, of the three-story building at 333 18th Street, just across the street from PS 295 between 6th and 7th Avenues, according to an FDNY spokesman. Firefighters on the scene tell us it also affected the building next door at 335 18th St.

The FDNY says that 25 units and 105 firefighters responded to the blaze, which thankfully resulted in no injuries.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
