Fire Claims Local Laundromat, Liquor Store

Just three doors from home in Brooklyn Heights, a fire this morning swept through two neighborhood businesses on Montague Street: a laundromat and liquor store. (Damnit, this is horrifying. Carrying booze in bulk is heavy when you have to use public transportation or walk it!). Fortunately, there were no injuries, though the small, one-story building looks like a loss, with the roof removed, and rain forecast for Friday.Below: Afterward.(Top photos: Dan Rosenbaum; bottom: Smoking Nun)
