Two fire trucks were damaged when a driver crashed into a firehouse on Long Island. A Toyota Prius rammed through the garage door of the firehouse in New Hyde Park, and hit the trucks.
A motorist was killed Sunday afternoon when he slammed into the wall of a firehouse in Yonkers.
The firehouses have “distinctive architecture” and have been in continuous use for more than a century, according to the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission.
More than 200 residents and merchants rallied in front of Engine 294 chanting, “don’t close the doors of 294.” This is one of 20 fire companies slated for closing.
Students from P.S. 107 marched over to Engine 220 to show their support for the firehouse – one of 20 set to close under Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s budget.
