Working fire in a vacant 2 story 4 family flat that extended to 5 story vacant apartment, While crews were working inside the 4-family, the intensity of the fire grew quickly and the order was given by the Battalion Chief to get all crews out of the building and air horns were sounded. Some firefighters became lost and temporarily trapped trying to locate the exit. At least 1 firefighter ran out of air and suffered smoke inhalation. The building was now fully involved and extending to the 5 story building next door. Firefighting was also hampered by low pressure in the nearby hydrants.
