On October 22, 2023, FDNY firefighters were confronted with heavy smoke from a single-story storage facility on 63rd Street in Sunset Park. The fire was quickly knocked down by the sprinkler system. Firefighters made the discovery of e- bikes and lithium-ion batteries stacked floor to ceiling in the building. One firefighter suffered minor injuries after his mask became dislodged and he was overcome by smoke. The fire ultimately went to a third alarm before being brought under control.
