So, what was the deal with that fire? Cell phone tower related? Transformer?

That huge cloud of nasty plastic-smelling smoke seemed to be from the NYFD hitting the cell tower with water. Is the building a hazmat site now?

This was scary - I hope no one was hurt.

ahh, that explains the nasty plastic-burning smell I noticed this afternoon. I'm on 11th and A/B and the odor made me think it was in my own building! Hope all are well.......
