The FDNY responded to a report of a kitchen fire this afternoon around 2:30 at 91 E. Third St., just west of First Avenue... The FDNY reported the small blaze under control in 10 minutes... Felton Davis, who lives on this block, said: "Congratulations to the FDNY for the speed with which they arrived and got this one under control... Many buildings, including ours, are over 100 years old, and it wouldn't take much for a fire to spread."
There isn't any word of the cause or extent of the damage. There weren't any reports of injuries.

Years ago, a fire occurred two flours above us on Fourth Street. The FDNY advised us to stay in our apts. so as not to interfere with the fireman and their equipment. Further advised to stay near the window by our fire escape until further notice. FDNY did a wonderful job of containing the fire. This is why you saw people in the building looking out their windows and not leaving the building.
