Fire breaks out at Bruson Building
« on: April 21, 2014, 06:11:17 PM »
I just read on Twitter that a fire has broken out at the Bruson Building on 37th Avenue, above Armondos.  Waiting for more information.

Saw the fire on the way home. According to NBC news, fire broke out on the Third floor.

8:00pm it's still going on.  I live across the street and have a front-row view.  This got way bigger than I initially expected.  Hope everyone is OK!

Oh Boy!  It looks like it's going to be a while before Armando's is up and running.

wow, anyone know what was in that space in the corner on the 3rd floor? It looks so intense in that video especially.

I heard something about a college? I'm not 100% certain. I also heard there were no injuries, and I hope that is indeed the case.

I suppose if there is any silver lining at all it's the fact that no one appears to have been seriously injured and no one lost their home.

the space was recently occupied by plaza business college -- which recently announced a departure that was widely applauded in an earlier thread here by some posters who wished it good riddance.

i am extremely hopeful that armando's, la portena and frank's didnt suffer any lasting damage....and i am always a bit suspicious of fires that seem to start spontaneously in empty spaces.

Plaza College had not yet moved to its new space.  Plaza occupies the basement level, the entire second floor and part of the third floor.  The rest of the third floor has small businesses like a dentist's office, some insurance brokers, a travel agent and possibly a social services agency.  Not sure what's on the 4th floor.
