2-alarm fire rips through Crown Heights apartment building on Thanksgiving

By Matt Trapani,


In the midst of cooking and prepping for Thanksgiving dinner, a two-alarm fire ripped through a Crown Heights apartment building.

Smoke could be seen pouring out of the building on Sterling Place, damaging some of the units inside. Residents were able to go back inside hours later to salvage what they could.

“I come home and my whole apartment is gone. Thirty-one years,” says resident Lynnette Roy. “On Thanksgiving.”

The American Red Cross says it is working with at least 26 residents whose homes were lost or damaged.
