Local Firemen on The Streets

FortGreeneCourier reports

Area residents were criticizing the city last week for turning a crucial neighborhood fire station into a movie set.

Residents said that they were quite surprised Friday when they passed Engine Company 280 and Ladder Company 132, located at 489 St. John’s Place, to find the fire trucks in the bays replaced with more vintage models.

The firehouse was also renamed – to Ladder Company 223. Signs reading “Engine Company 280,” “Ladder Company 132” and their motto, “In the Eye of the Storm,” had been removed.

It quickly became apparent that Engine Company 280 was rented out to a movie company filming the flick, “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry,” a comedy starring Adam Sandler.
