Brownstoner has some more details, as a neighbor explains many residents have been concerned about the brownstone, "a well known crack house that has been in operation for at least 3 years," even trying to work with the Brooklyn DA's office, NYPD and community leaders "to no avail." The neighbor says there had been a late night party and pointed out the windows of had been covered with sheets, "Clearly we are all in immediate danger when people are living without electricity, using candles and making crack." The fire was put out and the building essentially gutted.
