Wow. This fire was crazy to me. I was walking on my way to school this morning and all I can see was a whole cloud of smoke and firefighters near by. When I got close enough I couldn't believe it. I haven't seen a fire that bad in years. I still can't get over it. I feel bad for the people who lost their homes.

I saw the smoke from Bushwick Ave @ Madison. Hope everyone got out safely.

I recognize the building. It is 376 Palmetto Street. I spent a good portion of my childhood there. We lived on the third floor from 1963-1973. I am shocked the building was even still being occupied. It was a very old house when I lived there. When we lived there you could still see the capped off gas pipes sticking out of the wall which meant they were still using gas lamps when it was originally built. I was born in bushwick in 1957. Went to P.S. 116, JHS 111 then went to Stuyvesant HS in Manhattan. My grandparents owned a small apt building on Melrose Street near Knickerbocker Ave and I have fond memories of those early years. I can't believe what they are asking now for these tenement buildings!

I now live in 376 Palmetto, 3rd floor. Tuesday morning,6am, my glass shower door exploded I to a million tiny shards while we were sleeping. This morning at 6 am, my computer turned on by itself without having a wake up alarm set. I was not in Bushwick in 2009, I had moved from it in 2007, but I hear of the fire whenever I tell anyone where I live. I certainly hope everyone got out ok, and anyone ago was here, rest your souls!

To ccbyrd926-376 Palmetto Street is definately haunted. If I told you some of the things that my sister and I saw there when we were kids it would make your hair stand on end. There are some very unhappy spirits living there-they are not at peace. I think something terrible must have happened there many years ago. I am now in my 50's and every once in a while I will have a nightmare about that place. Good luck to you.
