Fire Ravages Breezy Point

In one of the worst fires in New York City history, 111 homes burned down in Breezy Point, Queens. Every home on the barrier island was hit by the storm or ensuing blaze. Aerial shots of Breezy Point show the scope of the devastating damage. One firefighter said that “flames were 50 feet in the air.” The fire started late Monday, and Hurricane Sandy slowed the firefighter response. There were no major injuries.
