2-Alarm house fire in Harvey, 1-22-15

Harvey firefighters went to a 2nd Alarm for a house fire at 192 E. 157th Street yesterday afternoon (1/22/15). Images from Josh Boyajian and Tim Olk.

From Josh Boyajian:

Yesterday we took in Harvey’s Fire @ 192 e. 157th st. We were coming from Merrionette Park so it took us a little bit. When we got there, Harvey was on the first floor working but still had heavy fire showing from the 2nd. Crews had a hard time getting a knock on the fire due to the construction of the house, but kept it from spreading to the adjacent house to the east. Here are some of my pictures.
Full Gallery is on my site.
