Residents fight Bushwick firehouse closure

BROOKLYN - Bushwick residents plan to fight the closure of ladder 124, one of 20 firehouses facing elimination under Mayor Michael Bloomberg's proposed budget.

Residents say closing the firehouse will increase response times for emergencies in the area.

The local community board plans to fight the closure through a letter-writing campaign and protests.
