At around 12:30 this afternoon, firetrucks rushed to the corner of Ludlow and Stanton streets after a small fire started in a wall on the bottom floor wall of 101 Stanton Street, occupied by Pimps & Pinups boutique salon. The mini blaze was immediately extinguished, but five FDNY companies turned up to lend a hand. No one was harmed during the incident.
The only apparent casualties: annoyed drivers who got stuck in place on Ludlow Street between Stanton and Houston while the trucks blocked their path. The folks at Pimps & Pinups didn’t seem to mind the incident much; haircuts continued while firemen walked in and out of the salon.
