The only good thing about this fire is that it is moving north and west. Once it reaches the bay, it’ll have nowhere to go.
Fire scanner is reporting odors of gas ... nursing home on 119th being evacuated as a result ... 200 block of 116th has odor too.
I heard reports of gas odors in Brooklyn about an hour ago when I was listening to one of the scanners my friend had linked to. Interesting that the power was already out when it started. I wonder what set it off as I would think a gas leak would cause explosions, wouldn’t it? (Maybe not if the origin of the leak is under water though... I’m definitely not anywhere near an expert on these things - just hypothesizing!)
119th would be a whole new area of destruction from Breezy Point. I spent four full summers at the “Sullivan House” on 115th street.
