A second alarm fire broke out in Williamsburg on Metropolitan Avenue near Lorimer Street earlier this afternoon. The FDNY tells us that there weren't any injuries, and that the fire is currently under control. It appears the blaze originated from the top floor of the Cheers Thai Restaurant.
Calls placed the restaurant received a busy signal. The FDNY spokesman noted that the cause of the fire is still under investigation, but at least no one was injured. This is precisely why we never order anything "Thai hot."
