On the Safe Side
Bad cook clears apartment building
A firefighter on-scene at the Hawthorne Manor last Thursday.
ometimes where there's smoke, there's just burnt food. On Thursday, just after 5 P.M., fire crews rushed to the Hawthorne Apts. on Gore Ave. after a call went out that residents smelled smoke in a hallway.
Just to be on the safe side, one of the residents activated a pull-station.
The building was evacuated and when firefighters arrived, a check of the building revealed that the smoke was due to some food left on a stove.
Residents were told they had to wait for the manager to arrive so crews could access the panel to reset the alarm.
