Last night at around 7 p.m., a fire broke out inside of Murray Hill's beloved old-timer delicatessen, Sarge's. The fire spread quickly through the ventilation ducts of the building into the apartments above the restaurant. Over 150 firefighters rushed to the scene. NYPD Deputy Chief Thomas McKavanagh tells the Daily News, "The restaurant sustained some severe damage and will not be open for a while." For a brief history of the 48-year-old deli, check out Brooks of Sheffield's Who Goes There? piece from two years ago.
