One person is in serious but stable condition after a fire last night left residents of 1271 Myrtle Ave. without a home and popular nightclub Bossa Nova Civic Club damaged and closed for repair.

In a statement to the Bushwick Daily given by the FDNY, the fire was started on the 3rd story of 1271 Myrtle Ave. at 8:28 pm. One person was transported to Harlem Hospital Center in serious but stable condition, and one dog did not survive. An investigation is underway by fire marshals.

Bossa Nova Civic Club, which occupies the first floor of 1271 Myrtle Ave., was damaged by the fire. According to the nightclub’s Instagram story, “The building sustained significant damage and it’s safe to say we will be closed for a notable amount of time. … Thank you so much for nine years of support and friendship. Gratitude to @juliancduron and FDNY for saving a couple of lives.”
