At Lunch Now: Halal Cart Catches Fire on 6th Ave.
This just in from Lunch’er “copyboy”…
Sara Halal Food, a generic chicken and lamb grilltop cart long a fixture on the corner of 48th at 6th Ave. caught fire and burned this morning. Billows of black smoke enveloped the lower floors of the News Corp. building as tourists gawked at the blazing mobile eatery. A hook and ladder responded and the fire was extinguished without much fuss. The cart seemed damaged and dirty (dirtier) although the splamb cube can probably just be shaved and reused. It’ll take a bit of refurbishment to get it back in working order.
About a dozen firemen poked and prodded the cart with fire hooks. They disconnected the propane tanks, which appeared undamaged and certainly undetonated. When asked what caused the blaze, a fireman responded, “Cause?”
