Yesterday evening at around 5:30 pm, a towering inferno was sparked on the Broadway sidewalk just north of 11th Street. Right outside the Brooklyn Industries storefront. Longtime reader Chris Thompson was there and caught some video of the frantic scene. Apparently the fire was stoked mainly by trash bags and other garbage, presumably resulting in the emanation of highly toxic (and gagworthy) fumes. The car parked nearby reportedly sustained some damage.
