There was an explosion and collapse at an apartment building in Manhattan Thursday, and a seven-alarm fire raged in the aftermath.

The blast happened on Second Avenue at East 7th Street in the East Village around 3:15 p.m.

The FDNY arrived on the scene to find a sushi restaurant on the lower level collapsed and smoke pluming throughout the five-story building. Then flames began shooting through the roof and quickly spread to a neighboring building.

Firefighters were pouring water onto the flames, but they had to pull back due to the intensity. The front of the structure came down shortly afterwards, and there were fears that the second building would also fall.

Evacuations were underway at all adjoining buildings, and charred rubble littered the sidewalk.

“I was going to have sushi at that place, and then I decided to get Ramen, so it’s only like three doors down,” a witness named Alexandria said. “And then all the sudden, the whole building shook, and it looked like the glass was like rubber as it shook, and it pushed me forward. And I ran out, and I saw people climbing out of the building. I saw one woman bleeding profusely, and she was out of it and didn’t know where she was going.”

Fire officials said that at least six people were injured, one critically, though it was unclear if anyone may have been trapped in the building. Many more people were believed to be hurt.

There were several mayday calls, but no firefighters were immediately injured.

All crosstown streets from First Avenue to Third Avenue are closed from East 14th Street to East Houston. One person is in critical and several others are injured after a seven-alarm fire erupted in Manhattan’s East Village this afternoon following a “major building collapse,” the FDNY said.

It is unclear how many are injured and how many people were in the buildings when the fire occurred, according to the fire department.

All firefighters are accounted for.

  3. The Beauty of Falun Dafa and its Persecution in China

    Greetings friends, please take a moment to read this important message:

    Falun Dafa (or Falun Gong) is a spiritual cultivation practice for mind and
    body that is widely spreading in the world and saving sentient beings, it
    is based on the principles of the Universe:

    真 Truthfulness
    善 Compassion
    忍 Forbearance

    It includes gentle exercises and meditation. It helped millions of people
    to regain health, peace of mind and obtain spiritual fulfillment. Since
    1999 this peaceful practice has been brutally persecuted by the CCP in
    Mainland China. People are being killed, tortured, put into labor camps and
    have organs harvested from live people, simply because of their belief. The
    official number of killed practitioners is more than 3800, but in reality
    millions Falun Gong practitioners have died from torture at the hands of
    CCP in the past 15 years. More than 100 million people around the world
    practice Falun Gong.

    People ask how can they help; Just spreading awareness is a big help. Let
    your family and friends know about the persecution. Many people invest
    money in China without being aware what it is used for. Many products that
    are coming from China are made by prisoners in the most pitiable
    conditions. If you want to help in other ways, please visit:
