A fire tore through a Jackson Heights grocery store during the early hours Friday morning, according to the FDNY.
Firefighters were called to a Bangladeshi supermarket, located at 37-16 73rd St., just before 6 a.m. after a blaze broke out on the first floor.
Twelve units carrying a total of 60 firefighters responded to the blaze, which was extinguished within an hour.
No one is reported to have been injured in the fire and the situation is now under control, according to the FDNY.
Insurance job? I can’t be the only one thinking this.
Thank you FDNY
PSA. This is not a sweeping generalization or meant to be an offensive comment. However, I have noticed that there a quite a few stores in the nabe that are dirty, cluttered, not necessarily up to code. So it doesn’t surprise me at all that if a fire broke out it would torch up the place. Sad though. Sorry for the people who lost a biz.
Way too many stores over there are fire hazards. I guess it will take a major incident for the city to take some action.
