UPDATE: Speaking of fires, Teri’s bar in the Italian Market was also damaged Friday. Check out Philly.com’s little story here.
A fire tore through the building on the corner of Moyamensing Avenue and Morris Street Wednesday night, gutting a dentist office and the four apartment located on the second floor.
According to the Fire Department, the fire started in the first-floor office of Dentex Dental Group around 10:15 p.m. and spread throughout the building. All occupants were removed and no injuries were reported, but it was clearly a scary scene. “Tons of smoke damage, soot everywhere,” a resident of one of the second floor apartments told us via email. ”All the second floor windows were broken in. A total mess.”
