I am a resident around Juniper Avenue where the fire was. I saw how the whole thing happened. The fire started at 137-37 Juniper Ave's basement and it spread quickly to the first and second floor. The guy next door who was fixing the garbage outside saw the fire and warn people inside the house that was burning.
