A tire from an FDNY truck blew suddenly Monday afternoon, and the pressure from the tire shattered a nearby storefront window on the Lower East Side, injuring several bystanders, officials say.
The truck was in front of 160 Delancy St. when something caused the tire to blow, fire officials on the scene said. The pressure from the tire broke a nearby clothing store window, but the tire remained attached to the truck.
Three people were hurt, but refused medical treatment at the scene, officials said.
A new tire was seen being attached to the truck at the scene.
