Fire at Austin/72nd Ave.

From the inbox:

We woke up around 3 this morning to the sound of breaking glass, thesmell of smoke and fire engine lights. There was a fire in theapartment building at 108-02 72nd Ave. at the corner of Austin Street.

We never saw flames but certainly could see smoke. I don't know ifanyone was hurt, but this morning it looks like the tenants in thenorth-west corner units -- at least -- of the six-story building abovethat Networks bar-restaurant don't have a place to live right now.
