This was the scene at the intersection of Crosby and Broome Streets in Soho last night as firefighters suppressed a fire on Crosby Street just south of Broome at approximately 10:00pm, as neighbors and news media gathered.
The fire appeared to be located at 33 or 37 Crosby Street, seen here in Google Street View, right in front of the UPS truck.
ABC 7 Online reported four people were injured, including two firefighters. The fire "burned through the roof and filled the top three floors with flames," by the time firefighters arrived.
Michael Varian, who has a shop at 35 Crosby, has reported the fire was at 37. He shared a photo of his shop online and fretted over a broken window, complaining that firefighters were "effectively bulls in a china shop," when they entered his business get to the back of the building.
