Basement Fire on St. Marks
Firefighters have responded to a fire on 11 St. Marks Place, between Second and Third avenues. They are currently at the scene of the fire, which was reported at 1:32 p.m. The Fire Department informs us there was a 21-unit response. The first responders arrived at 1:34 p.m.
The fire occurred in the basement of the five-story building that houses St. Marks Comics, as well as a back and foot rub and acupuncture studio. A witness said the FDNY had to knock through the wall of St. Marks Comics to reach the fire's source. There are no reported injuries. Let's hope all the Silver Surfers and Wonder Womans are safe, too!
