There was a fire, a couple buildings down from mine

There was a fire, a couple buildings down from mine, and I had quite the view of it. I actually smelled something first as I was sitting down to work on something, flipping the switch that enabled (among other things including the light I want) my soldering iron, but it was still in sleep mode of course. Not much later, I noticed this out the window:

That's the back side of this building. Seems pretty serious, enough to have broken through the roof. I'm totally fine, but things are a bit smelly.

Here's a story about it from the Post, which says over 100 fire fighters responded, two of which ended up with minor injuries.

My phone only lets me shoot 10 minutes of video at a time, so I had to (spend 20 minutes shooting, then) re-encode to stitch two clips together. But you get to see the blaze at (what seems) its worst through to being put out by New York's Bravest.
