Firefighters are trying to gain control of a massive fire engulfing a Williamsburg warehouse Saturday, as authorities fear the building might now collapse. The FDNY deployed a fire boat in the East River to battle the flames, which are sending plumes of thick smoke over the neighborhood.  Strong winds carried ash and soot that fell from above several blocks away from the waterfront blaze at North 11th Street. “I smelled this burning smell and I looked up and saw all of this smoke billowing,” said Heather Schmidt, 33, among the area residents with their scarves tightly wrapped around their faces to fend off the soot and smoke

“I’m about a mile away and the smoke was very thick all the way back there,” said Manhattan Ave. resident Anthony Charles, 40, who was standing on the corner of North 11th St. and Wythe Ave. and flying a drone about 200 feet above trying to catch footage of the blaze. “It’s crazy,” he said. “I smelled the smoke at about 6:30 am.” No injuries have been reported yet, officials said.

Muirhouse church fire: Looks to be deliberate


Fire

Like watching an ex house I lived in gone to ruin

I think I broke the news on this one as it was happening thanks to a friend living opposite it. https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/11/30/scotland-st-pauls-chapel-pennywell-road-muirhouse-in-flames/ To see a part of your youth in that state is more that sad. I have so many memories of this building. They used to do “Poor oots” at Wedding where the newly married couple would throw loose change for the kids to fight over. ‘Poor oots’ was from 200 years ago when the rich married in the big churches they would throw money to the poor, so, ‘Poor oots” I research the oddest stuff. It’s just so sad, many family memories for me when I lived down there as a kid

St Paul’s, in the Muirhouse area of Edinburgh, was engulfed by flames at around 9.30pm on Sunday. A group of youths were seen near the building less than an hour before the blaze started. Fire crews managed to get the flame under control by midnight and worked through the night dampening down the building. An investigation into the cause of the fire will started on Monday.

Inspector Alan Carson said: “This was an appalling attack on a religious building which, despite its closure, was still of importance to the local community in Muirhouse. It was a reckless act which could well have resulted in serious injury or worse. “We are eager to talk to anyone who may have witnessed anything suspicious around the church on Sunday night. “We are particularly keen to trace a group of youths who were seen near the church less than an hour before the fire was reported. Tracing these young people would significantly help us with our enquiries.”

The Catholic church, which welcomed its first worshippers in 1971, closed in October. The 11,745sqft site is currently up for sale as a potential industrial or residential development. Anyone with information about the blaze is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 or through Crimestoppers on 08000 555 111.

Devastating that the building is well alight.  Numerous fire engines in attendance, Fire is ripping through the building, I went here as a kid, it’s a building I was in as a baby, this is so tragic. To people who know this street below, you will know how far it is from St Paul’s church, I am being told the Church is GONE. So, so, so sad. I had family married there in the past
