3 Alarm Fire Damages Capitol Heights Church

On New Year’s Day, a 3 alarm fire heavily damaged the 1st Baptist Church of Capitol Heights. Units were initially dispatched for a report of a church fire at Central Avenue near Suffolk Avenue. While enroute to that location Truck 6, from the Hillside Volunteer Fire Department, came across the correct location of the church fire on Capitol Heights Boulevard, just off Central Avenue. Units worked for most of the day to bring this fire under control and get to fire travelling the void spaces.
