A reader just sent in these photos of a fire that broke out at the Associated Grocery Store as well as the apartments above it at 17th Street and 5th Avenue. There’s heavy smoke, tons of fireman, and the streets are blocked from 18th Street to Prospect Avenue. Gothamist Maps shows the fire broke out at 12:40 p.m., but we don’t have any more details yet. Anyone know what happened?
