2-Alarm Fire at 39 Eldridge Street [Updated]
A two-alarm fire broke out at 39 Eldridge Street shortly before 4 am this morning. The top floor of the five-story building is still smoldering, but firefighters are battling through. There are searchlights on the rooftop and the ornate cornice is visibly blackened. Shattered glass and the musty smell of smoke envelop the block at the moment. Now a half-hour later, it appears the flames are under control.
No word yet on the cause of the fire or if there are any injuries as a result. If you have more info or photos, drop a line. More as the story develops…
