Kosher Sushi Distributor Goes Up in Flames in East Flatbush

JewishPress Logo

DNAinfo reports that firefighters were battling a four-alarm blaze in a one-story commercial building that houses Natural Earth Products, a kosher sushi distributor in East Flatbush, Monday morning.

FDNY officials said the fire broke out at 561 Utica Ave. at about 10:30 a.m. At least 35 units responded to the blaze with roughly 150 firefighters on the scene. A fourth alarm was issued just before 1 p.m. for relief purposes, fire officials said.

Firefighters had rushed into the building with a hose, but were forced out when the roof, ceiling and part of a wall collapsed.

“It’s too dangerous to send people in,” Deputy Assistant Chief Michael Marrone said at the scene. There was also a lot of debris inside the store, he said.

Natural Earth Products is the distributor of nori, wasabi and other sushi products.
