Fire Ravages 6th Street Kitchen

Posted on | January 5, 2011 | 2 Comments

Fire Ravages 6th Street KitchenIn a perfect example of how NOT to start 2011, a fire engulfed 6th Street Kitchen (507 East 6th Street between Avenue A & B) & the 2 apartments above yesterday at 7:30 am.  1 fireman was injured, but all residents got out.  A second fire broke out at 9:40 am & residents were evactuated again.  Representatives from the restaurant claim that it was a freak accident & are busy scrambling to get the space back in to working order.  There is no news on when the restaurant will reopen.
