After hearing about the two fires yesterday in the neighborhood, many people remarked — seems as if there have been a lot of fires here of late.
Indeed, I've covered 13 since May. (I included the manhole explosion on First Avenue... though not the car that caught on fire on East Fourth Street in September.)
Thankfully, in each of these fires, there weren't any serious injuries... and as far as what has been reported, none of the fires have been deemed suspicious by authorities....
