A Williamsburg staple is still closed after dealing with a 5-alarm fire that caught multiple buildings in the early morning on July 1.
In a recent Instagram post, Union Pool shared, “We’re making significant progress in cleaning & repairing the parts of the bar damaged in last weeks fire.”
According to Brooklyn Paper, fire department officials said a total of 14 people were injured (11 firefighters and 3 civilians). Seven firefighters were taken to area hospitals to treat their injuries, while the other seven injured were treated on the scene.
The fire was underway before 6 a.m. and raged until close to 8 a.m. A neighboring deli and Peruvian restaurant, Chimu, also suffered damages from the fire, as seen in photos posted by a Twitter user.
The cause of the fire is still being investigated.
Due to the temporary closure, Union Pool’s Big Summer Show with Piggies, Country Western, and Fletcher C Johnson will be at Harefield Road this Thursday, July 7 at 8 p.m.
