Fire damages unit in Midtown Kingston row house
Thu. Oct 16th 2014

KINGSTON >> A fire Thursday morning on Henry Street in Midtown left one unit of a five-section row house uninhabitable, a city fire official said.

The unit at 19 Henry St., just off Broadway, is owned by Gloria Amann and occupied by her husband, Helmut, according to Deputy Fire Chief Wayne Platte. He said the unit was uninhabitable because the fire spread to walls and ceilings throughout.

Helmut Amann, who teaches at a private school in New York City and has a second residence in New York, was not home at 7:34 a.m. when the fire was reported by neighbors who smelled smoke, Platte said. He said residents reported smelling smoke as early as 6 a.m. but did not report the blaze because they didn’t know where the smell was coming from.

Platte said he did not know if there were working smoke detectors in the unit.

There were no injuries, and firefighters rescued a turtle and goldfish from the burning unit, Platte said.

Firefighters arrived three minutes after the call but the blaze was not declared completely under control until 11:44 a.m., Platte said.

At least eight of the 21 total residents of the five units were home during the fire and had be evacuated while firefighters battled the blaze, Platte said. Their units were not damaged, and they were able to return home late Thursday morning, Platte said.

The four other units are owned by Stefan Sanzi, he said.

Platte said the cause of the blaze is under investigation but is not considered suspicious.

Firefighters from Ulster Hose Company 5 also responded to the scene.
