2008_10_lesfire.jpgLast night, a three-alarm fire ripped through a building at Elizabeth Street near Spring in Nolita. The fire started in Acela Dejesu's sixth floor apartment. According to the Post, when she returned home from shopping, she opened the door and "was met with a wall of flame"; she told the paper, "I had no idea how it happened." The Daily News describes how the the building, a "walk-up home to a mix of old-world immigrants, yuppies and hipsters," was gutted, with windows exploding onto the street and over 100 firefighters responding to the scene. Fortunately, there were no serious injuries--a few firefighters and civilians were taken to hospitals for treatment. Photo: Gawker
