Staten Island NY, 6/16/18 (5th Alarm)
Per #FDNY Fire Marshals: Saturday’s 5-alarm fire at 237 Steinway Ave on #StatenIsland, in which twenty Firefighters were injured and five homes were damaged, was accidental, caused by a child playing with a lighter. Parents, be #FDNYSmart, please teach children that playing with fire is NEVER okay. Never leave children alone with matches, lighters, or lit candles. If you suspect a child is setting fires intentionally, the FDNY can help. The FDNY Juvenile Fire-Setters Intervention Program works to both educate and evaluate children (up to the age 12) who are engaging in fire play. The program is run by the Bureau of Fire Investigation and is completely confidential.
