UPDATED, 6:42 p.m., Feb. 25: A fire broke out just after 6 p.m. yesterday on the third floor of 511 Amsterdam Avenue, between 84th and 85th streets. The blaze quickly spread to other apartments and the neighboring building at 509 Amsterdam Avenue. Five people were injured.

The four-alarm blaze brought around 170 firefighters to the scene, as the flames consumed the fourth and fifth floors of the the building. Downstairs, restaurant workers at Jacob’s Pickles — a restaurant popular with locals and celebrities like Michael Strahan — attempted to save kitchen equipment, dragging boxes to the sidewalk.

The owner of both buildings is an entity called 509 Amsterdam Associates, L.P., which is controlled by developers Marc and WIlliam Shore.

Jacob’s Pickles tweeted last night that the restaurant is fine, but closed for now.
