Fire rips through Hunts Point Terminal Market

Hunts Point Terminal Market in the Bronx suffered a massive blaze this morning that devoured one building.

The fire, which started in one of the facility’s buildings on Edgewater Road and drew at least 130 firefighters to the scene, raged for more than an hour, according to an official report cited by the New York Daily News. No injuries were reported.

The destructive flames come as the market’s much-needed redevelopment hangs in the balance as a result of failed negotiations with the city. The co-op, which held a 30-year lease that expired in 2001 and a three-year gap lease that ends in May, abandoned talks with the city in September, saying it would instead wait to deal with the next mayoral administration.

Hunts Point market previously attempted to bring a lawsuit against the city over the lease and redevelopment, but was forced to abandon the procedure because it did not provide the city with the required 30 days’ notice before filing a complaint. [NYDN]Julie Strickland
