News Alert: Coney Island Arcade Catches Fire!

Coney arcade on the Bowery in Coney Island was on fire a couple of hours ago!  No known cause as of yet.  The building is on the corner of W. 12th St and the Bowery.  Next to the building is the Coney Island Bank Building which is owned by Thor Equities that has been rumored to be on the endangered list of Thor demolitions.  The fire seems to be between the arcade building, owned by a long-time Coney arcade operator, and the adjoining concession.  No word yet and the current status or outcome.  It is presumed that the fire has, at this point, not spread.

Discussion is undergoing at the Coney Island USA message board.
