    No word on the amount of damage or whether it affected a part of the complex that the developer plans to reuse. I guess it's a good sign that the fire only went to 2 alarms.

    Activity seemed to quiet down shortly after that 2nd alarm was called so maybe it was more out of caution than anything. It was on 10 pm news last night (while on-going) but nothing on any of their websites now, which also suggests it was minor.

    Yet I think every fire truck within 25 miles was here or blocking access to the island

    I’m just happy the smell went away and hazmat didn’t evacuate us

    No obvious damage visible from 76 either.

    There was a water supply issue. Extra engines were required to piece in to the fire from available hydrants, which were only in one direction from the fire.
