    News account of Fatal Fire

    The Building
    The scene was a Long Island General Supply store, a two-story 128-year-old brick and wood hardware store at 12-22 Astoria blvd. and 14th Street. It was closed on this Sunday afternoon. At the receipt of the box alarm ticket, the building was described as a multiple dwelling, at Box 7512 (Incident #297, FDID: 01168-7512-01-5-0297)

    The Fire
    The fire, which was reported at 2:19 p.m., began as a two-alarm blaze in the closed hardware store. Firefighters appeared to have the fire under control, then were jolted by a blast. The store fire illustrated once again that there are no routine calls for New York
