Good morning, East Village.

While you were sleeping (unless the sirens awoke you) our neighborhood witnessed yet another fire, on East Seventh Street near First Avenue. Officials said that the blaze broke out around 11:40 Wednesday night at 127 East Seventh; the fire was declared under control in about 40 minutes. Two firefighters were hospitalized with minor injuries and investigators are still working to determine the cause. The blaze is the third in the neighborhood this week after a pair of fires Tuesday morning. DNAinfo has more information and there are photos at EV Grieve.

In school news, on this first week back for the semester, we’d like to point you to DNAinfo’s report on an East Village charter school suing the city to stay open.

Meanwhile, if you’re hungry for brunch, you might be tempted by The Wall Street Journal’s blurb on Jewish-fusion foods at Octavia’s Porch on Avenue B.
