Small Fire @ JFK T3 (Old DL)

Mon Oct 28, 2013 10:04 pm

Apparently there is a fire on the roof of T3 -- the old Delta termianal JFK.

From Breaking 911 at 5pm on 28-Oct: "PAPD is reporting fire on the roof of a construction site by the old gate 18 in Terminal 3, the Delta Airlines terminal. FDNY is being escorted to the site by PAPD."

Scanner traffic reports via Twitter: "Queens: Box0302 at JFK Airport FDNY on scene with a all hands fire in Terminal 3. PAPD Hazmat Operating on scene."

No reports of evacuations, damage, injuries, etc. Or affect on airfields ops. As a reminder, JFK T3 is closed to passengers.

The report of an "all hands fire" may sound dramatic, but it's actually just the FDNY's term for a standard, first-alarm response to a structure fire.

Oops...
http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/3323...erminal-3-firefighters-responding/

Quote:
Firefighters responded to a fire at JFK airport in the Queens borough of New York City on Monday.

Port Authority had a permit to burn trash in a barrel at terminal 3 during demolition–the terminal is currently closed–but someone saw the fire and called the FDNY, which was duty-bound to respond, a Port Authority spokesman told Epoch Times.

The Port Authority said that the fire was extinguished as of 5:20 p.m. and was also extinguished by the time the FDNY arrived.


If you see something, say something!  Yeah sure

I actually wonder if the person who called FDNY was one of the preservationists and actually knew about the permit to burn trash.

It wasn't a trash fire. It was Richard Anderson trying to burn the landmark down...

The landmark part is gone already.

Moving very slow on the rest

"The FDNY gained access to Terminal 3 through Terminal 8." (in the article)

Not really sure what the terrible reporter is actually trying to say here but at first read it sounded like the FDNY went to ask AA if they could go to DL's old terminal and put out the fire! Or maybe they surprised the fire via some mysterious underground tunnel connecting the two terminals...

I assume the writer meant the FDNY gained access to each terminal - but why would that have been necessary? And why would T1 and T2 have been left out? They are, after all, closer than many of the other terminals! And why include that in the article?
None shall pass!!!!
