4 Alarm Fire! Hong Kong Supermarket burned to ashes

There was a blazing 4 alarm fire at Hong Kong Supermarket in Chinatown last night at East Broadway and Pike Street. I live blocks away and heard the fire trucks and the smoke.  It’s a sad day.  It might have only been a no frills, stop and shop market but it is kind of a landmark place in Chinatown. Almost every New Yorker has heard of or been to Hong Kong Supermarket once in their life. My friend Ben was one of many at the scene and reported at least one minor injury.

It’ll be interesting with what will happen to that corner…
