BREAKING: Fire On 18th Avenue Between 62nd And 63rd Streets

We just received a tip and some great photos from reader Joseph L. about a fire on 18th Avenue, between 62nd Street and 63rd Street.

From Joseph L.’s e-mail:

12:30pm fire in the King Size laundry mat building. Looks like the fire occurred on the third floor apartment. One ambulance was on scene about 12:40pm and at least eight firetrucks parked on 18th Ave, 63rd and 62nd streets and multiple FDNY SUVs on the scene. Crowds of at least 200 people clogged the sidewalks to watch. Pictures attached.

Please stay tuned to Bensonhurst Bean for any possible updates to this story as it develops.

[UPDATE] 10/3/11

We were rather pressed for time when initially posting this and were not able to get all of Joseph L.’s great on-the-scene images in the original story. As requested by reader Barkingspider7, we’d like to show you more of Joseph’s fine work.
