Karl Junkersfeld surveys the aftermath of today’s fire on Montague Street. There are conflicting reports in Brooklyn’s newspapers as to where the blaze began.
The Brooklyn Paper reports that the blaze started in Montague Wine and Spirits, while the Brooklyn Eagle reports that it started in the laundromat and spread to the liquor store. Given BHB commenters’ observations and Karl Junkersfeld’s video of the damage it appears on first glance that the Eagle got it right. However, we won’t know until the FDNY issues its report.
