“Upon arrival, our members observed heavy smoke coming from one of the units on the first floor.”

Hollander says they had to force entry into the appartment as there was nobody home.

“We found that there was some food or cooking material on the stove that was left unattended.”

Hollander says they’re just ventilating the smoke so everyone can go back inside.
