Never a boring day: Brooklyn apartment fire

I work from home most days, editing in front of the computer in our 2nd bedroom/office/storage room/home gym (the lack of space here in NY forces us all to consolidate).  Today was no different, until about 2:30 this afternoon when I started smelling smoke.   I looked out the window to see that the building directly across the street had smoke pouring out its chimney, and soon after several firetrucks came screaming into the neighborhood.  The situation, apparently started from the boiler in the basement, quickly escalated and the entire building was left in a charred mess.

This woman was at home on in her apartment on the first floor.  She told me she heard a loud bang before the fire started.
These three asked me to take their picture.
One happy moment, when a kitty was brought safe and sound from the burning building.
