East Village Rooftop Cottage Engulfed In Flames

New, 19 comments

Around 3:40 this afternoon, an all-hands fire broke out atop an apartment building at East 13th Street and 3rd Avenue. Many will recognize this building as the home of the adorable rooftop cottage that reportedly just sold for $4.4 million. In photos, flames and black smoke appear to be coming from the middle of the rooftop along 13th Street. StreetEasy shows that there are three penthouses in the building, so it's possible that the fire originated in one of the other units and not the cottage that faces Third Avenue. At this point, it's unclear if anyone was hurt, but we will update as more information becomes available.

UPDATE: The fire was extinguished in under an hour. No injuries have been reported.

FYI it's out
