Apartment fire last night three feet from where I lay my head [Gowanus / Brooklyn]

The building next door to me caught fire last night. I awoke at 4am to a huge firetruck crane 3 feet from my 4th floor window. Then firefighters came into my room to see how warm the wall at the head of my bed had become. I think they would have knocked down my door if I failed to open it after the second knock.

At 4:30am I left my smoky room and snapped a couple pictures (that came out pretty red)

The burned out window is the 7th from the left. Also note that we have the only tree on the block!
