Wire Alert: El Bocadito Beset By Flaming Stools

Hot off the Wire comes this breaking reader report from the Lower East Side: "On my way home tonight and I was cutting down orchard st. I noticed tons of smoke covering the street. El Bocadito at 77 orchard btwn broome and grand was on fire. 5 fire trucks showed up and they proceded to hook up the hoses and spray down the place. Later after a bit of time i came back around and outside a few stools were outside. it appear a few stools had caught fire and a few other things."

Pity the poor Nuevo Mexicano newcomer, which opened this past spring on a block beset by construction. Calls are being made for an emergency Shutter status update in the next EaterWire.
