Fortunately no injuries.

    This is Douglas owned – no? Either way, looks like the owner is going to be able to claim some insurance money for the vacant property.

      The next corner down at N Cap and P is a vacant space (although “under construction”) definitely owned by Douglas. I’m not sure about this one. Last time I walked by, Eastern Carry Out was open and operating, though.

        Douglas owns quite a bit of that side of the street between NY and FL avenues. All blighted or empty.

        • Sydney

          Well, Douglas started demolition and construction on one of them — with no permits. So that’s sitting, too. Doesn’t keep them from becoming supports for huge, ugly, illegal billboards, of course.

    “N. Capital”?? Seriously?

    • It’s twitter. And they were battling a pretty serious blaze. And me, I’m addicted to cut and paste – spelling errors be damned!
