This image has been archived or removed.
Firefighters are deployed en masse to the corner of Orchard and Grand Streets. Smoke has been billowing from the Pink Building for the last fifteen minutes. Ladder is up outside 63 Orchard.
This is the second fire in the last few years at the landmarked building, formerly Ridley’s department store.
We’ll have more as it develops.
Update 5:06 pm: the fire is extinguished. FDNY packing up and leaving.
