That plume of smoke you may have seen off Delancey Street Saturday evening was actually a dumpster fire outside the Seward Park Extension at 154 Broome Street. The fire burned for some thirty minutes before it was put out.
A Facebook user caught some of the blaze on his mobile phone and posted online. “I have to say I was surprised at how intense the heat was that came out of it,” Pastor Bob Subjenski noted.
No word at the moment on what actually caused the blaze. But we hear that Engine 15 headquartered on nearby Pitt Street quickly dispatched to the scene and extinguished.
