The past few weekends have been a little rough for Brooklyn residents. Last Saturday, we reported on a deadly accident that happened in Sheepshead Bay and a police officer who might have been over the legal limit to drive in Brooklyn Heights.
This week, our attention shifts to the the neighborhood east of Williamsburg; the locale of interest for a stabbing and a fire that took the life of a young woman happened last night.
Later on in the night, a few blocks down on Furman Avenue, a fire broke out around 4am that consumed an entire apartment building. Residents were able to evacuate thanks to the help of a passerby who was able to hoist down the fire escape. Unfortunately, not everyone got out alive – a 25-year-old woman was found dead in the third floor of the complex.
