A reader notes a fire scare this evening on St. Mark's Place at 96-98 St. Mark's Place — (the Physical Graffiti buildings) ... Per the reader on the extent of the damage: "Not sure — [firefighters] ran two hoses up, had two truck ladders up to the roof and a few guys climbed up the fire escape to break windows and climb in. We smelled smoke but didn't see any flames. The building was totally soaked — water running down the staircase/hallway."
