2-alarm fire erupts at vacant East New York home for 2nd time in 8 monthsPosted: Updated:
Over 100 firefighters responded to a two-alarm fire Thursday morning on Belmont Avenue.
The fire erupted 546 Belmont Ave. and then spread to the home next door around 6:46 a.m.
Fire officials say the fire at the two vacant homes was under control around 8:23 a.m.
Many say they smelled smoke. A man who lives next door to both homes says he heard someone yell fire and then he ran out.
This is isn't the first time 546 Belmont Ave. has seen flames. News 12 covered a fire at the exact home back in February, where a family was displaced. The home right next door, at 548 Belmont Ave., was burned during that fire as well.
A woman who lived there recalls jumping out of the window and being in critical condition just a few months ago. She says she had plans on fixing it and returning to the home but sees this second fire as a huge setback.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
Firefighters say there were no reported injuries.
