A massive fire Thursday afternoon brought down three New York City buildings after an explosion at 121 2nd Avenue. Two people were reported missing following the fire.
The Post identified the two missing people as 23-year-old Nicholas Figueroa, who was on a date at the Sushi Park restaurant in 121 2nd Avenue, and 27-year-old busboy Moises Locon, who was reportedly standing in the area of the fire.
The FDNY or NYPD have not identified the reportedly recovered bodies.
On Friday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said there was “a possibility here that the gas line was inappropriately accessed internally” by people in one of the destroyed buildings.
