New York firehouse goes up in flames

February 25, 2014

Firefighters are trained to keep cool in tense situations, but one New York firefighter found himself in a hot spot on Monday.

“It’s embarrassing to call and say there’s a fire at your fire house,” Ed Brancati, chairman of the Golden’s Bridge Fire Department board of fire commissioners, told the Associated Press.

The Golden’s Bridge firehouse, located north of New York City, burned down on Monday in a fire caused by an electrical connection, according to the Journal News of New York.

A video report by the AP shows at least a dozen firemen in uniform gazing up at the decimated firehouse with windows blown in and a charred exterior.

Brancati listed a “half-million dollar rescue truck” among some of the costly damages the fire racked up.
