so sad. lucky it didn't spread to the adjacent buildings!
Yikes. This is the third fire in the area in just a few days (E 4th St last week and E 5th St on Weds).
Hi Goggla,Where was the fire on East Fifth Street?
5th Street between 2nd & 3rd Aves, around 6pm. The fired dept couldn't tell which building was burning (fire was on the back), so people ran across the rooftops, shouting instructions down to the firemen on the street. It was cool to see neighbors being on the ball like that.
