Koolman Fire Followup
Following last Tuesday's fire at the Koolman garage in Williamsburg, crews spent the weekend power-washing the iconic ice cream trucks. It appears that all the trucks that were housed in the Grand Street depot were damaged to varying degrees - from heavy smoke damage to totaled. Huge holes could be seen in the roof of the structure as well.
We spoke to a group of Koolman drivers Sunday, who said they are still awaiting the FDNY's report on the cause of the blaze. When asked if the trucks were insured, they gave us the who knows what will happen look, with one driver commenting, "you know how insurance companies are; they'll probably try to get out of it."
