Some of Hurricane Sandy's most devastating damage was dealt to Breezy Point in Queens, where more than hundred homes were destroyed in fires. 

As of Tuesday evening, the FDNY said it has not completely put out the fire that, fortunately, caused only minor injuries.

The call for the fire came out at 11 p.m., just hours after Sandy struck the city and rose to a third alarm. The 170 members of New York’s Bravest had to wade through knee high water as they tried to put out the flames but 111 residences were destroyed.
