Smoky blaze rips through Ocean Avenue home

Checking everything out...

Firefighters check out the attic of an Ocean Avenue home to make sure that a one-alarm fire that erupted inside the basement had not spread to a higher elevation.

FDNY officials said that the fire broke out inside the basement of the home, located between Avenues N and O, at around 11 p.m. on July 8.

Neighbors said that the elderly couple who lived in the home was out for the evening when the fire broke out.

Residents tried to make them as comfortable as possible as they watched smoke-eaters fight back the flames.
