A fire swept through the Three Monkeys restaurant at 99 Rivington Street (at Ludlow) this evening shortly after 8 o’clock. Twitter users posted quite a few images from the scene. No one was injured and there’s no word yet what caused the blaze. Firefighters extinguished the flames in about a half hour. 99 Rivington was once the home of the cafe, Paul’s Boutique, made famous by the Beastie Boys. Earlier this month, a fatal fire broke out in a tenement building on 124 Ludlow, on this same block. More photos after the jump.
