Fire on Lower Fifth


A three-alarm fire Sunday morning tore through this five-story loft building at 125 Fifth Avenue, between 19th and 20th Streets.


Six trucks, 12 engines and 138 firefighters responded, according to Fire Department spokesman Brian Conlon.


But no injuries. The shops below–a Fed Ex/Kinko’s combination and the trendy Intermix clothing store–had not yet opened by 6:08 a.m., when the fire was first reported. The case is under investigation.
