That nice EV penthouse on 13th St. & 3rd Ave. that was just sold is on fire! @evgrieve #eastvillage #fdny pic.twitter.com/5walmtAa44— urban myths, legends (@urbanmyths) August 27, 2015
Via EVG reader Justin, who is at the scene: "Hard to know for sure, but it the FDNY seemed to have it under control quite well. Dozens of firefighters on the ground standing by, a couple on the ladder/bucket, and maybe only 10 on the roof. Seemed like routine work for them. It's mostly out now; no flames visible anymore."

MAN ALL HANDS 203 E 13TH ST, MULTIPLE DWELLING FIRE ON THE ROOF, UNDER CONTROL— FDNY (@FDNY) August 27, 2015
Looks like the flames are out at the @Kiehl's building and #fdny is working on hot spots. cc @evgrieve pic.twitter.com/NgEmBQerV1— Barry Loudis (@barryloudis) August 27, 2015
The FDNY told CBS 2 that there weren't any injuries. There's no word yet on the cause of the fire.
The penthouse cottage was in contract, according to Curbed. The asking price had been $4.4 million.
Previously on EV Grieve:
Live in tranquil cottages overlooking … 3rd Avenue (but still)
That place just went into contract, was listed at $4.4 million. Guess it didn't come equipped with a decent sprinker system.
Our dreams, up in smoke!
Not my dreams, Goggla! I saw the place at an open house years ago when it was on the market, and the layout was just plain screwy.
If I remember correctly, the roof used to have a hot tub - wonder if the hot tub got too hot?
Just saw this on 7. What a shame. I loved this apartment. Hope no one was hurt.
I hope the party in contract can get out of this deal. The new owners did not have possession of the apartment so I assume they just dodged a bullet.
I believe Matt Damon owned that spot around '04-'05. If not that one, somewhere close by and similar looking.
