Woman dies in cellar fire
From the NY Post:
A 30-year-old woman was killed in a Brooklyn blaze Sunday morning, police said.
The flames broke out in an apartment building at 2227 Homecrest Ave. in Sheepshead Bay about 6:30 a.m.
Sixty firefighters from 12 units battled the fire for about an hour before it was extinguished.
The woman, whose identity wasn’t released, was taken to Coney Island Hospital, where she died, cops said.
The fire started in the basement, and the Fire Marshall’s Office is investigating, fire officials said.
