Apartment fire on my block! Melted PS3’s and saved lives

12 03 2009


This @#$% is crazy! A huge fire on the top floor of an apt building on my street is majorly on fire right now.  The whole East Village is full of smoke, people running  both away from and toward the scene. The sound of falling glass from the apts above inexplicably made me bring out my phone; I managed to shoot some live Qik videos of the carnage.  Guys on top of 5 story tall ladders breaking out windows so people inside can grab on and climb down the ladder.  Don’t judge till u watch them all –> here:  http://www.qik.com/selectroclash

I’m in shock. Live on 12th Street. You are the only one to report so far. Terrifying. Loved Stuyvesant market. What a loss for neighborhood… Thanks for reporting.
