Fire at Sims Pumps & Valve Co.

7/9/2008:

There was a fire and 411 missed it? That’s what happens when I actually have a moment to have a great night out!

Anyway, a Hoboken411 reader caught this fire last night after 10pm at Sims Pump Valve Co. on Park ave. (near Malibu Diner):

Smoke and firemen

“Hello,

Here are some pics of the HFD knocking down a fire which appeared to be inside the Sims Pump Company. It’s on Park Ave btwn 13th & 14th, adjacent to the Malibu Diner. The place looked empty at the time, aprox. 9pm. I could hear a buzz saw, perhaps they had to break in to get to the fire. I could only see smoke from my vantage point. I did hear that it was moved up to a 2nd alarm. In any case, a pretty big response… many vehicles, both fire & police.”

Some old timers would have called that Jewish Lightning, I call it test prep for future arson to make way for condo’s.

I took the pictures. I’m sorry they were so hard to look at for some of you. Next time I see a bunch of fire trucks outside my window I’ll be sure to reach for a tripod and and a professional lighting kit, and maybe blahblah can tag along and be my assistant.

[quote comment=”91871″]411 or whoever took those pics need camera with a flash…lol….or upgrade the camera….electronics expo on route 17 has great cameras….[/quote]

The problem isn’t that they need a flash, the problem is that they need to learn NOT to use it when doing shots like these. All you see in these photos are the highly-reflective things reflecting the flash back, and not a whole lot else.
