A kitchen fire broke out in an apartment building Friday night, forcing all the residents to evacuate.
The FDNY were called to 50-05 44th St. at about 9:00pm and dozens of emergency vehicles filled a two block area at 50th Ave.
What firefighters found was a kitchen fire in Apartment 4A and heavy smoke. No injuries were reported and fire damage was contained to that one apartment.
“It’s a regular response.” said Battalion Chief James Maloney, “you never know what might happen.”
Suejin Suh, a fourth floor resident, said that the hallways were full of thick, black smoke.
