If you didn't see it on the news, or down the street from your apartment like I did, the Dominick's at 3012 N. Broadway burned down in an "extra-alarm fire" yesterday evening. The store was open for business at the time, but no fatalities occurred and the fire was contained to the one building. No word yet on what started the blaze.
