On Friday night March 1 a fire broke out at one of the Village View Houses at 60 First Ave. at E. Fourth St. (behind the trucks, above). More than a half-dozen fire trucks responded. A fire chief on the scene said that the fire was in one room of Apartment 18B on the 18th floor. The chief said there were no civilian casualties but one firefighter suffered a very minor injury. By 7:30 p.m. the fire had been extinguished.

    What was not mentioned in any story about the fire is that the firemen rushed into the wrong building just across the street and paid absolutely noattention to a pedestrian who was shouting at them that they were in the wrong building. Finally, a cop came running towards them and they all raced over to where the fire was. How did they get the wronf address? I was on the scene when this all happened. Also, there was some hanky panky going on concerning he tenant who lived in the apartment, and a check with the development's president might turn up some interesting information.
