Responding to the scene (in the order of their arrival) were members of Engine companies 332, 236, 231, 290, 233, 227 and 225; Ladder companies 175, 120, 103, 107 and 112; Squad Co. 252; Rescue 2 and Battalions 44, 39, 37 and 28—under the direction of Division 15—along with the 75th Precinct and EMS units.
