Firefighters extinguish Inwood garage fire


Inwood and Lawrence-Cedarhurst firefighters extinguished what was described by Inwood officials as “heavy fire” from a one and half story garage at 205 Sheridan Blvd. near Davis Avenue that was “threatening nearby buildings” in Inwood at 10:52 p.m. on April 4.

The firefighters found “a heavy smoke condition on arrival,” officials said as they found the fire in the back of Jimmy’s Place, a bar at that Sheridan Boulevard address. LCFD members worked to ensure the blaze did not spread to the roof. No injuries were reported, officials said.

Long Beach and Valley Stream fire departments and Atlantic Beach Rescue provide coverage area in case of additional emergencies.
