According to news reports, FDNY firefighters at today’s four-alarm junk yard fire in Jamaica, Queens spotted some familiar faces among the employees. The firefighters recognized them as the grandsons of the late mobster John Gotti from their reality TV show “Growing Up Gotti”.

Their mother Victoria Gotti also came to the scene at Liberty Avenue and 155th Street. It’s Victoria Gotti’s ex-husband, Carmine Agnello, who owns the three-block-long junk yard known as A&J Scrap Metal Processing.


Earlier, fire department Deputy Assistant Chief Michael Marrone told 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria about the situation.

“We have stacks of cars and the associated hazards — oil, gasoline, tires burning and the fact that they’re stacked up, make it difficult to extinguish,” Marrone said.

Marrone said the blaze was very smokey was too dangerous to let firefighters get close, but added there were only a handful of minor injuries to firefighters and police.
