Five-Alarm Fire Destroys Empty Building in Chelsea

Thanks to everyone who has reached out to see if I'm OK following this massive fire in Chelsea.

Apparently it was unoccupied, in the process of being converted from warehouse to residential. The blaze started at 2:55 a.m. and raged for more than four hours, finally being extinguished just after 7. As I left my apartment to go to the dentist this afternoon, I noticed the FDNY was even using an hydrant on my block. A job well done! Read HERE.
