We’re hearing (and seeing the smoke!) of a big fire at 132 Montague Street. We will post more info when we get it.
UPDATE: Reports are that it is now a four alarm at 132 Montague St. where Heights Vision is located. All people got out safely. Heavy smoke seems to be drifting north to the bridge. A resident of Dumbo reports that they can smell it from their hallways. This is the second major fire in the neighborhood this Fall. More updates to be posted as they become available.
UPDATE 2: The fire started at around 6:15 am, allegedly on the 2nd or 3rd floor. The roof partially collapsed, and one firefighter is reportedly injured.
UPDATE 4: As a general note, the building was recently purchased in 2016 by “132 Capulet Holdings, LLC C/O Lois Kirsh”, for 6.4 million dollars, and was recently the home of Caffe Buon Gusto, in the ground floor space.
