Fire – 11th and Bloomfield
A fire started this morning shortly before 6am on the southwest corner of 11th St. and Bloomfield.
It had apparently started in the basement and began traveling up the walls to the first floor.
This particular building was under the process of being gutted and had only one occupant, who was able to escape out the rear fire escape. From what I understand she’s being treated by Union City medical and being transported to St. Mary’s. Probably smoke inhalation.
Firefighters had a difficult time because of the thick smoke conditions and limited oxygen supplies, but it appears to be under control at this time.
