A fire broke out tonight at 143 Essex Street, a 5 story building located between Rivington and Stanton. Firefighters, paramedics and police responded in force. Multiple firetrucks stretched from Houston, past Stanton, spilling on to the side streets. About a dozen residents of the building stood watching the scene from across the street. Emergency crews were handing out blankets and food. One of the residents said she was in the building when the fire broke out. She said it didn’t appear anyone was injured. 143 Essex was built in 1920. It has 18 apartments, as well as ground floor retail space (including Essex Dental and the Wing-on Trading Company).
