New York's fire department says a building partly collapsed and caught fire in Chinatown on Thursday, sending six people to hospitals. At least three of them were in serious condition. The Fire Department got the call around 12:45 p.m. Thursday. The fire was under control shortly after 1:30 p.m. Authorities later discovered that the source of the explosion that set off the fire and building collapse was the improper use of bug bombs in a beauty parlor on the Pike Street building's first floor. Fire investigators found almost two dozen canisters of insecticide at the scene.
