Christmas Decorations Spark Smoky Fire

The southern end of the busy Beach 116 Street shopping area was closed down for a time on Tuesday morning, by a smoky fire in the awning of Ciro's Pizza, at 239 Beach 116 Street. Fire officials say that employees of the pizzeria made the first call at 10:18 a.m. on Tuesday. In all, 12 fire units and 65 firefighters responded to the call and the fire was reported as under control at 10:41 a.m. While the fire did not stop the shop from quickly reopening, extensive water damage was reported to the shop, the apartments above it and to Mr. Rocco's, a beauty salon next door.
