Fire at 69 Grand Street (Photos)

Out walking on an adventure. I pass by a house on the other side of Grand Street and notice something that looks like fire in the window. A gentleman runs out and yells "Call 911," and starts breaking windows and I realize it IS a fire in the window. I call 911, police and trucks show up, flames billowing out, a giant cloud of smoke filling the air down the street.

Crazy shit. More pictures after the jump.

  2. You're hardier than I am. I live a few blocks away at Swan and Madison, but didn't feel up to braving the wind chill to take pictures.

  3. After I met up with you guys I was present for a convo between the director of Albany county refugee services and a member of the red cross. The red cross said they were giving them 3 nights in a hotel and gift cards to get more stuff, but had nothing on hand. I ran back to my place to get a few pairs of socks and boxer shorts, blankets, towels, a jacket, sweatpants and a couple shirts, i.e. whatever I could carry. After walking up and down the street to try and find them again, I couldn't but talked to Mike. I walked up near the corner across from the blaze and some folks were happy to take the stuff and seemed real grateful. Besides the one who perished, I think everyone else has a place to stay with their other relatives on the street. That being said, I think they definitely still need some help. Tonight for FNB I was going to go knock on some doors since we're getting bags full of bread from BB
