Neighbors Wake To Smoke, Stench In Brighton

A fire at a grocery store and residence broke out in Brighton Beach early this morning. FDNY trucks arrived at Neptune Avenue and Brighton 5th Street around 6:00 a.m. to put out the flames. A reader, who sent these photos, said it looked like the fire started in the basement or the ground-level floor. The reader added that something unusual must have been burning, because there was a stench that seemed to be more than smoke.

We’ll update with more information as it becomes available.
