A fire erupted at a Beach 87 Street house where a young girl was killed in early April in an earlier fire. Contractors were working in the building at the time, but nobody was injured.
A few days later, firefighters broke through the roof at a house on Beach 132 Street early Wednesday morning when an electrical fire started on the third floor. Many off duty firefighters who live in the area responded and assisted the family in getting out safely. Only one firefighter was injured, when he cut his hand on a broken window.
