Another Fire in the East Village Scorches Commercial Building


Smoke was pouring out of 628 Broadway this morning, and downtown bloggers were all over that fire beat even before NotifyNYC gave anyone the low-down. The fire’s reportedly been put out, but there are several businesses in the East Village commercial building that may be out of commission for a while, including Urban Outfitters and Sun Studios. If you know how the fire started or have any more information, let us know. Here’s some fire photo porn after the jump, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Hopefully this whole large fire in a large building thing doesn’t isn’t a recurring theme. We prefer trends like these.
