This morning in the East Village we’ve been hearing a lot of helicopter and siren noise (more than usual, even!). Turns out there was a fire at the Ageloff Towers on Avenue A between 3rd and 4th Streets. Via a reader, jdx, EV Grieve reports, “Fire on the 6th floor, east 4th side, caused by a burning towel left on the radiator.” The FDNY reports seven minor injuries, but no fatalities. A photo of the aftermath, after the jump.
Also according to the FDNY, the fire is now under control and the cause is under investigation. If you were there, get in touch!
