Police are looking for a wig-snatching duo that stole thousands of dollars worth of cosmetic wigs from a Ridgewood studio space last week.

The two women broke into One Eyed Studios, located at 1639 Centre St., last Wednesday, April 22 around 3:40 p.m., by forcing open the front door, police said.

Firefighter injured battling 2-alarm house fire in Forest Hills early Wednesday morning: FDNY

The FDNY battled a fast-moving two-alarm house fire in Forest Hills early Wednesday morning that injured one firefighter. The blaze broke out in a two-story private home at 114 Walnut St., a block north of Forest Park at 2:34 a.m. Arriving units found heavy fire conditions throughout the basement, first and second floors. Firefighters were hampered by an SUV parked illegally in front of a fire hydrant at the location.

The FDNY transmitted a second alarm, bringing 25 units and 106 firefighters and EMS personnel to the scene. Nearby residents said the building had been undergoing construction in recent weeks and firefighters were evacuated from the rooftop due to sagging conditions towards the rear of the home. Firefighters could be seen through a second-story window pulling down ceilings after flames breached the cockloft, the area between the roof and ceiling.
