Yesterday an Upper East Side hot dog cart caught fire, shooting flames onto the awning of a nearby Ralph Lauren. No hot dog lovers, street vendors, or RL shoppers were hurt: "'I turned on the hose and lit the fire and 'Boom!'' shaken cart worker Alla Ali, 50, said of the 9 a.m. blaze...The FDNY blamed the blaze on frayed edges on the hose connecting the tank and the cooking area of Ali's cart."
