Emergency personnel responded to a pair of fires Wednesday morning on the Upper West Side, and it’s not clear what caused either of them.
At around 8 a.m., a trash can was on fire at 93rd street and Broadway, and there was a large police response near the corner, one of our anonymous tipsters tells us. We haven’t yet heard back from NYPD on what was going on.
And at 11:53 a.m., a fire broke out on the fourth floor of 2166 Broadway at 76th street. Will Harahan told us there were stretchers at the scene, but FDNY says no one was reported injured. The fire was under control by 12:54 p.m. Photo above by Noah Bullock.
Earlier today the National Weather Service issued a Red Flag warning for New York until 6 p.m.: “A Red Flag Warning means a combination of dry brush and gusty wind conditions support fire danger.”
