Was Engine 47 possibly first due since their quarters is only 3 1/2 blocks away from the fire building?  Perhaps they were out on another call at the time; if not, I imagine they can beat Engine 37 coming from West 125th Street.

There were multiple boxes out in the area at the time, so I'm not entirely sure which one got in 1st.  I'm pretty sure both companies were out of quarters at the time though.
