Fire on West 101st Street

A two-alarm fire broke out on the top of a building on West 101st Street today because  people illegally grilled hamburgers on the roof. Gray smoke billowed through the air and spread for blocks around. FDNY controlled the fire quickly and evacuated all of the residents safely, including this couple and their dog.
