Everyone knows about the transformation Madison Square Garden is going through. What most don't know about is that there's a smoke smell lingering in the rafters. For the second time in just over a month Madison Square Garden experienced a fire that required the attention of firefighters.
For the second time this summer there has been a fire in Madison Square Garden. On June 18, a fire started in the generator room on the ninth floor. It burned for less than an hour before being put out.
Firefighters raced to the 4 Pennsylvania Plaza around 9:30 AM to battle the fire on the roof. It took 60 firefighters from 12 units about an hour to control the blaze. There were no reported injuries.
Monday afternoon at around 4:20 PM a second fire broke out in Madison Square Garden, this time closer to arena level. It is not clear what started the fire. However, it took about an hour for 84 firefighters to bring the fire under control. No injuries were reported.
During construction and renovations small incidents like these are expected. That being said, hopefully this is the last of its kind for the summer. The only thing fans want to see on fire in Madison Square Garden are the New York Knicks while they shoot on offense.
