The fire that took two lives and dozens of businesses in Hoboken has bizarrely restarted on the other side of the building. Barsky Gallery posted on social media early this morning, sharing that the Hoboken Fire Department had returned to 38 Jackson Street to help extinguish the flames.
“*** Update 12/22/21 12:15am
Fire has started again on the other side of our building and has been burning for 2 hours now. Thank you to @hobokenfd for all of their hard work in dealing with the bizarre situation,” the gallery shared on Instagram.
The fire began early Monday morning, December 20th, and took almost 24 hours to extinguish — originally. It is unconfirmed if new fire has been fully extinguished as of Wednesday AM. We have reached out to the Hoboken Fire Department for confirmation.
One adult female victim has been identified, according to the Hudson Reporter, as Rose Marie Vos, 60. No further information has been released. She was found with a 60-year-old male who has yet to be identified.
Go Fund Mes have been set up for businesses that have been displaced and affected, which we’ll be sharing shortly.
