Franklin Avenue Fire Shutters Two Businesses

Radha Grocery and Aissatou Hair Braiding closed and several apartment windows boarded up after early morning blaze.


A pre-dawn fire on Franklin Avenue temporarily closed a bodega and a hair salon and affected several apartments.

The blaze broke out just before 2:32 a.m. Wednesday at 788 Franklin, at the corner of Lincoln Place, an FDNY spokesman said. 

Twelve fire trucks and about 60 firefighters fought the flames at the four-story apartment building, which were put under control at 3:03 a.m.

Twelve hours later, Radha Grocery Store and Aissatou Hair Braiding Salon remained shuttered, and several windows in apartments above were boarded up.

Let's hope the stores had more than just liability insurance,and the renters had renters insurance.
