Fire at UES Burger Restaurant Injures Four People

The fire started in the walls and went up the building

1830 2nd Ave. FDNY

A fire that started inside the walls of a Burger One on Second Avenue injured four people this morning as it traveled up the building, the Post reports. It started around 6 a.m. at 1830 Second Ave., near 94th Street, and took nearly 140 firefighters and three hours to bring it under control. The fire moved up pipe chasers, causing damage to the floors above, FDNY Battalion Chief Michael McCrory tells the Post.

People living in the four floors of apartments above the restaurant were able to get out, but two firefighters and two civilians suffered minor injuries in the process. NY1 reported that the restaurant is still under construction. Another Burger One on the Upper East Side at Lexington Avenue tells Eater that it is unaffiliated with the Second Avenue location. It's still unclear what caused the fire.
