A car fire on 4th Street
This afternoon, Kanielle Hernandez had just parked her car when it erupted in flames in the Mariana Bracetti Plaza lot on Fourth Street between Avenue B and Avenue C... the FDNY (the nearby FDNY Engine 28 Ladder 11) quickly responded to the blaze... EVG contributor Stacie Joy was on the scene... Hernandez doesn't know how or why the fire started but speculated that rats may have chewed through wires in the engine. (She had noticed some rat-chewing damage last night.) Thankfully no one was injured, though the car is in bad shape.
