Drea De Matteo saw her New York City apartment destroyed Thursday in a building collapse caused by an explosion and subsequent fire.
The 43-year old took to her Instagram to post shocking pictures of the seven alarm fire with the caption, “NYC’s finest trying to put out the flames to mine n many others apartments. Speechless. Praying for those that are hurt.” She then posted another picture of the destruction writing, “A hole where my NYC home of the last 22 years once stood… RIP 123 2nd Avenue.”
Charlotte Ronson and Sophia Rossi also lived in the buildings and took to their social media to share their grief with Ronson posting, “R.I.P 123 Second Avenue. Beyond devastating. Sending love & light. #regram @dreadematteo I love you and am so sorry beyond words…”
While there have been no casualties from the explosion and fire, news reports indicate that there are 19 injured and four in critical condition while people nearby helped those inside escape and firefighters arrived within minutes.
