There are reports of a duct fire at 856 Manhattan Avenue tonight, and firemen were dispatched at 7:10pm (Saturday, April 28th). The address 856 Manhattan Avenue is where local tie-dye and magical items shop Starhawk Design Studio is located on the ground floor, but it seems that the fire may actually be at 860 Manhattan Avenue, at Sunshine Laundromat (and Pinball). Via Facebook, Alexa McInerney comments: “I spoke with a cop who thought it was at the sunshine laundromat. So crazy because the laundromat around the corner on Franklin had a fire a couple of weeks ago.” An eyewitness tells us there were “lots of trucks, but no [visible] smoke or flames.” We’ll update this post when we hear more.
