Five firefighters have been injured when their truck careened during the wall of a development while responding to a blaze in Queens Sunday night, in keeping with FDNY officials.
Participants of Engine Co. 303 were responding to a record of a fireplace while their truck struck the side of an vehicle-portions warehouse at Liberty Road and one hundred and fiftieth Street in Jamaica, officers said.
The truck pierced the brick facade of the industrial warehouse, tearing a 12-foot gash within the construction.
4 of the 5 firefighters refused medical consideration at the scene, at the same time as one was transported via EMS to North Shore School Medical Center in Manhasset.
No civilians have been injured, consistent with hearth officials.
The reason behind the coincidence continues to be under research.
