Six firefighters and a civilian were injured in a massive fire at 511 Amsterdam Avenue between 84th and 85th Street on Friday night, according to FDNY. The four-alarm fire drew 39 units and a total of 170 firefighters to the scene. The injuries were minor, according to an FDNY spokesman.
The blaze, whose cause is under investigation, was called in at 5:56 p.m. and was under control at 8:44 p.m.
The fire tore through the third, fourth and fifth floors and a shaft inside the building, which houses E’s Bar on the ground floor and is next door to Jacob’s Pickles restaurant. Jacob’s is closed now but will honor reservations at Maison Pickle, the restaurant that it recently opened on 84th and Broadway.
