FUNDRAISER FOR VICTIMS OF WASHINGTON STREET FIRE — Friday, Feb. 19 at Kolo Klub
There will be a fundraiser this Friday night, February 19, at Kolo Klub (1422 Grand Street) to help victims of the recent fire on Washington Street.
Last Saturday, units from all over the region converged on a Hoboken fire that tore through apartments at 507 Washington Street, shutting down the city’s main thoroughfare. The blaze appears to have originated in an apartment above the Verizon Wireless shop, before spreading to the roof and adjacent buildings.
Residents escaped the blaze, while 14 firefighters sustained injuries ranging from cuts and bruises to exhaustion and hypothermia—with temperatures in the single-digits and windchill well below zero at the time of the fire.
Friday’s fundraiser, sponsored by Saints Peter & Paul Church and CarePoint Health, will feature food provided by Liz & Anthony Pino and live music by Liam Brown and Ross Sandler.
