Is it just the furniture store or all the stores between 84 & 85 Street that are destroyed?  

Your welcome Sun. The fire reportedly started in a liquor store then moved toward the appartment house

The smoke is very heavy right now and we are getting out of the apartment (we are on the south side and at times we can't even see the building across the street because of the smoke)

No injuries have been reported as of yet. NYPD helicopter at the scene for crowd control.

Remember there are stores with chemicals in that row - cleaners, art store, etc.
The black smoke is still pouring out.

Copter just left. So quiet now. Just sad. I bought some beautiful pieces at that furniture store. I had plans to buy a desk there.

My little ones are really worried and somewhat anxious, especially the little princess as we walked out to the street to see the smoke.  We are here praying and praying hard and loud.

Strange question but is that the street where Cavalier was located?

Best,   :smiley6600:
