Assi Plaza On Fire

For all of you foodies, The Asian market at Assi Plaza is on fire with fire through the roof. It doesn't look good.

  1. Crap. I was gonna go there later today.

    1. Fortunately, it was contained in an hour, thanks to 11 fire companies converging. I hope interior damage wasn't too significant. It sounds like there was a short in the outdoor sign for the pharmacy that spread to the roof.

      1. oh my goodness! glad it was contained quickly, hope the damage wasn't too extensive.

        1. I was wondering what all the fire trucks were about yesterday afternoon. Checked facebook this morning and found out about the fire
          The Alternative Press of North Penn covered it pretty well

          I’m so sad! Thankfully there were no injuries!

          1. It's been closed and is expected to reopen Friday, June 6th (according to the person who answered the phone there).

                  Made a fast visit on the way to the dog park today. I didn't have much time but I was hoping to get some korean fried chicken wings. Could not find them. Do they still have those wings somewhere in the supermarket?

                    You will find them in the back by the fish, but I am not sure if they are there every day. I do not remember if there is a vendor in the food court that sells them.
