On May 18, 2020 at 2359 hours NFD units were dispatched to 32 N. Buena Vista Street for report of a house fire. While responding the dispatcher advised they were receiving additional calls reporting smoke and fire showing.

This house had previously been set on fire on May 5th. You can view that video here.…

Upon arrival a 360 of the building revealed fire on the back side of the structure with fire extending to division-2. Because this house had previously been set on fire, all of the windows and doors were covered with plywood by our Property Maintenance Department.

Unfortunately most of the view is blocked by apparatus. Nothing can be done about this.

There were no civilian or firefighter injuries at this fire. A firefighter was subsequently transported to the hospital due to an illness.

This video was recorded with a Motorola Z Force Droid cell phone, which limits the length of each video to about 30 minutes.
