Fire on Fifth
As you probably know, a large fire broke out at the Associated Grocery Store at 617 Fifth Avenue (near 17th Street) on Friday. We noticed it on a ride down the Avenue at about 7:00 in the evening but it appears that the fire had been raging since 12:40 p.m.
Several businesses and apartments were severely damaged but it appears that there were no serious injuries, which we are all thankful for.
We really couldn't get close enough to get the scoop, so we have linked to news stories, below, for more details:
