    According to news here this morning, a major fire tore through an apartment blg. on the Lower Eastside of Manhatten. I hope none of our friends were affected by it.

    I hadn't heard about it.
    Possibly this one down in Chinatown (it's the only thing I found on topic)
    7-Alarm Fire Hits Chinatown Building - NYTimes.com

    "At least 14 people were injured in a blaze in Chinatown that reached seven-alarm status shortly after midnight Monday morning.


    More than 250 firefighters and more than 60 Fire Department vehicles responded to the borough-wide call, descending on the six-story building at 285 Grand Street, a residential building anchored by a storefront.

    Supposedly it was in the Chinatown area. My nephew lives somewhere in that vicinity and I've been a bit concerned all day. Nobody has called though so he's probably fine.
