Three homes were ablaze in the Irvington neighborhood last Thursday night — two were vacant, one was occupied.  Among the fire companies summoned to the fire was Truck Company 10, one of the companies slated for closure, under the Mayor’s foolish budget cuts to public safety.

After surveying the damage the following day, I have to wonder if the people in the occupied home (a young couple with a new baby) would have been as lucky if less equipment and personnel had been there to fight the blaze.

The fire started in the middle home:
