Morris Park Cigar Shop Burns Down Before Christmas
BRONX– FDNY Fire Marshals are investigating the cause of a blaze that injured one person and destroyed at least one shop, a cigar shop that opened in 2009, that was gutted.
Officials say the all-hands fire broke out at 10:51 p.m. on Sunday, December 23, at the Avenue Cigar Lounge, located at 1074 Morris Park Avenue.
The fire quickly spread to at least one apartment above the commercial business and a business next door. The fire was brought under control at 11:26 p.m., and there were no other injuries.
It remains unclear if Napoleon’s ll Unisex Hair Salon next door suffered any substantial damage, but calls to the location went unanswered the following day.
