FDNY Responds to Fire at 31 Willow Street

A little before 2pm, the FDNY responded to a smoke condition at 31 Willow Street in Brooklyn Heights. Firefighters identified the source of the smoke on top floor and roof of the building at the southeast corner of Willow and Cranberry Streets. No flames were visible from the street and smoke appeared to be coming through a chimney and the top floor apartment. Fireplace issue?

FDNY appears to be clearing the situation as of 2:45pm.

BHB reader “Meg” sent us these two shots of the FDNY on the scene a well as the aftermath …

    Yes – apparently a fireplace issue.

    I’ve often wondered: what is the difference between a “smoke condition” and “smoke”?

    My favorite of this genre was some years back, when police were said to have responded to a “snake condition” in the basement of a house in Queens.

    I love my fireplace and it burns wood most every night all winter long.
