Montague Wine & Spirits shop and the laundromat at 78 Montague Street yesterday.
Brooklyn Eagle, the fire started in the laundromat, then spread to the wine shop, causing extensive damage. There was a “heavy body of fire in the rear,” Chief Costello told the Eagle, with extension into the liquor store through the ceiling in the rear of the store. (The Brooklyn Paper says the fire started in the wine shop.)
Brooklyn Heights Blog says it was an electrical fire that started in the laundromat.
The windows were boarded up by 9 p.m. last night, though workers were still at the scene past that time. Karl Junkersfeld has posted a video on the Brooklyn Heights Blog showing the aftermath of the fire.
