There is a large fire in the old Pinball Pete's (across from the current location) and U Towers is evacuated. I hope no one was injured.
OT: Fire on South U
shit... hope everyone is fine.
I saw some of the pictures from this already (friends uploaded). It looked almost like the place exploded - very bad.
That place always looked like a fire hazard. We might be seeing the unfortunate result.
Holy shit, that picture looks like the gates of hell opened up and started swallowing Pinball Pete's whole...
All copy/pasted from my twitter feed. I feel like such a citizen journalist.
Also, one of the photos can be found here:
They've got it under control - U Towers didn't get much damage, just some 3/4F apartments had some scorching on the outside.
East Lansing is to couch as Ann Arbor is to abandoned pinball arcade.
