Smoky Fire Strikes Two Cars In Dump Lot
Two cars dumped in a empty lot between Beach 87 and Beach 88 Street north of the elevated subway line burst into flame at about 4 p.m. on Wednesday, July 11, bringing firefighters from several local companies.
Neighbors say that the lot, which is strewn with at least a dozen abandoned automobiles and assorted debris is a magnet for local kids and homeless people. It took the fire department at least 40 minutes to put out the fire.
