Five Alarm Fire at Dim Sum Palace Decimates Chinatown Building
A five-alarm fire tore through a Chinatown building early Sunday morning.
Shortly after midnight, the fire sparked in the rear of Dim Sum Palace, the restaurant in that ground level of 6 Chatham Square. The blaze quickly spread to all four floors and to the roof.
Six hours later, the FDNY announced that the fire was under control.
Approximately 39 units and 170 firefighters responded to the Chatham Square blaze, five of whom reportedly suffering minor injuries.
No other injuries were reported for residents in the building.
This fire follows two weeks after another early-morning fire on Mulberry Street killed a woman and her son.
