Structure Fire

On April 12th at 7:13 P.M. the Pearl River Fire Department was dispatched for an Automatic Alarm at 73 South Pearl Street (Beital’s Exotic Aquariums). Beital’s Aquariums operates out of a 6,000 Square foot industrial building and is a wholesaler who specializes in exotic fish, coral supplies and custom fish tanks.  A active fire was confirmed by Chief Sampath with heavy smoke coming from the building. Both 12-Tower and the 12-1500 arrived simultaneously and was directed to firefighting and search and rescue operations. A small fire was found inside, however due to the plastics and other material burning visibility was very limited. The fire was quickly extinguished however the building sustained significant smoke and water damage.
