Engine 58/Ladder 26 fire - Manhattan Box 33-1333 – September 5, 2018

New York City Fire Department (FDNY) September 6, 2018

“The fire was on the first floor, right at the base of the stairs when we came into the lobby. The fire was out the apartment door going up the interior stairs. We proceeded to the floors above and began our search. I found an unconscious patient, so I called it in. At that point, the can man, Probationary Firefighter Edward J. Masterson, came upstairs and helped me get the individual out of the apartment where we could hand them off to EMS,” says FDNY Lieutenant Andrew Magenheim, Ladder 26, who rescued an individual from a 3-alarm fire in Manhattan yesterday evening. Lt. Magenheim says, “The teamwork of the members getting a line in position quickly and the irons guy, Firefighter Brian Foley, forcing the door to make sure we had an escape route was very important because once we were above the fire, we could not go back down the stairs the way we entered.” The patient was transported to a local hospital in serious, but stable condition.

Burn Center Chronicles - Caring Nurses Heal Firefighters' Wounds and Spirits.

By Alan Saly - from Firehouse Magazine, March, 1985

Standing next to Gluck in the Training Academy auditorium was another firefighter who had been burnt on the job, Kevin Munnelly, out of 58 Engine. He told the probies how he had suffered severe burns when advancing a hose-line through a flammable liquid fire. For his bravery in maintaining his position and protecting fire fighters in the adjacent stairwell and second floor of the structure, he received a departmental citation. As a result of the heat of the fire and scalding water, firefighter Munnelly sustained burns to his throat, neck, ears, thigh and both hands -- third-degree burns on the left hand and second-degree burns on the right hand.

Because of the extent of the burn injuries, Kevin Munnelly needed skin grafts at the Burn Center. It was a job done with such care and skill, under the direction of the center's Dr. Michael Madden, that it now takes a sharp eye at handshaking distance to see the contours where the graft had been applied. No discoloration or abnormal tightening of skin is visible. Like Bob Gluck, Kevin Munnelly looked like he had never suffered a serious burn injury. While both men still carry the internal scars, they have come back to the job with confidence and eagerness, to face the same risks again as part of their daily routine. The care and concern they received from the Burn Center staff has had a lot to do with that inner strength.

Daniel-1915-Medal.jpg

Manhattan Box 22-746 1473 Madison Avenue. Forced to make a lightening calculation in order to safe life, FF Daniels succeeded in performing a remarkable rescue at this fire; the young man rescued was standing on the window sill of the 4th floor when a sudden sweep of the fire compelled him to jump before the ladder could be placed in position. FF Daniels, who was standing on the top of the ladder, succeeded by an effort of great strength and dexterity, in catching the man and getting him safely on the ladder. He caught the full weight of Windman's body. Had it not been for his remarkable strength, he would have been thrown from his position.

RICCARDI 4.jpg

Manhattan Box 22-1342 26 Lenox Avenue. Ladder 26 was blocked by parked cars and had to position itself 46 feet from the building line. When the aerial ladder was fully extended, it was still 8 feet from reaching the stone ledge of the top floor of the 7 story multiple dwelling. A woman was sitting on the ledge and was above the fire floor. FF Riccardi ascended the aerial to the top of the ladder. While he was perched precariously at the top of the ladder, the woman quickly became panicky and threatened to jump. FF Riccardi convinced the woman to turn over on her stomach and to attempt to lower herself to his outstretched arms. The woman quickly dropped onto FF Riccardi and his extended arms with her full weight almost forcing both off the top of the aerial ladder. FF Riccardi was able to regain his balance while holding the woman. FF Riccardi then carried her down the aerial through heavy smoke and heat. He was then able to assist her to the street below.

Joe, "mack", what a GREAT JOB.

This latest history on Engine 58/Ladder 26 is "special to me".

Back in 1968/69, I was just starting to get into buffing the FDNY after my initial introduction to Engine Co 210 and Rescue 2 on Carlton Ave, Brooklyn. It was also a time before the very popular book came out titled: "Report from Engine Co 82" and we learned of the fires going on in the South Bronx.
As I also remember, these were the days before portable scanners.

I just happened to find this firehouse and I thought that I could pretty much find my way around with the numbered streets. I remember sitting a couple of hours near that firehouse and when the rigs went on a run, I tried to follow them. It didn't always work but ever once in awhile I'd see them operate.

At that time Ladder Co 26 was an ALF Tiller. I loved watching it turn those corners.

The FDNY always had those air horns too, something that I hadn't heard in my home town of Bridgeport.

Harlem's Engine 58 and Ladder 26 was also a busy area and the work load seemed to be picking up over the next couple of years. Even when the book Eng 82 had come out, I would still head over to 58/26s area because I liked it over there.

I guess my point is that right after my FDNY introduction to Engine 210/Rescue 2, thanks to a Engine 210 member nicknamed "TAD", it was FDNYs Eng 58/Lad 26 that kind of broke me into the hobby of buffing the FDNY, which later played a huge part in helping me to do my job as a firefighter here in Ct.

After decades of chasing the jobs of the FDNY, it later brought me into a NEW PHASE of buffing. One of chit chatting from a chair, or on this web site, or before the COVID 19 started - face to face chit chat with some guys who I found, talked about the job as firefighters and how they enjoyed doing what they did.
