R’ Neuman, Menahel of BYAM: Miraculously Last Bus Left When Fire Broke Out


R’ Neuman, Menahel of Bais Yaakov Ateres Miriam in Far Rockaway shared the following memo with parents:

Dear Parents,

Just to give you all a heads up in case you hear anything else.

B’chasdei Hashem we had just sent away the last bus on Beach 13th when flames started shooting out of the house right behind our school on B. 13th. Boruch Hashem, a fire truck happened to be on the next block, and called for backup.

As we watched the flames shoot out of the second story, I recited the complete Modim for the open miracle of having no one in the building.

Boruch Hashem the flames were contained but it came close.

The firefighters are mamash heroes! We watched as they fearlessly went into the burning building with flames shooting out around them.

We have a slight smoke smell in our building. We are opening windows to try and air out the building. Hopefully it will be gone by tomorrow morning.

I just spoke to a Fire Marshal who said the house was tested and there are no toxins in the air..Give your children an extra hug tonight.

Be gebentched.
