Here’s a direct link to the photo slideshow with pictures from the scene of the fire. Since this is in a flooded area they can’t get the trucks there, and they can’t get water there either. Lots of fires reported besides this large one. Apparently, several square blocks are on fire.

FDNY is doing a great job — they rescued many people via boats when the fire just began in the Breezy Point neighborhood. Prayers for all of them.

This is my hometown . . .

Here’s a link to a video of the Breezy fire:

And here’s a link to another fire further east on the beach near 116th

In between these two fires is another at approximately 130th ... about 8 houses, restaurant and maybe the church.

The boardwalk is ripped apart ... parts of it are blocking entrance to my brother’s house.

That is horrible.

Doesn’t the city have pumper trucks? Couldn’t they pump all the flood water onto the fires?
