**Note - Sorry for the delay in posting photos, crazy day in the city

MFD received a call from the homeowner of 53 Shady Lane reporting a smoke condition in the basement. Within 5 minutes Engine 5 from Webster st arrived and reported a heavy smoke condition visible from the exterior of the building and a fire in the basement. Two hose lines were stretched and the fire was extinguished within 60 minutes.

The building was searched and ventilated and turned over to the Fire Prevention Bureau for further investigation. Fire does not appear suspicious at his time. No injuries to civilians or firefighters.

Two adult occupants escaped and will be unable to inhabit the home for the immediate future.

According to MFD District Chief Brendan Burns occupants were awoken and alerted to the fire via smoke detectors throughout the home. DC Burns said we would like to remind residents to check their detectors and replace their batteries at least twice a year.
