A suspected gas leak that caused four New York City buildings to burn and two to collapse Wednesday has left the city shaken—as well as many celebrities—but Drea de Matteo, Charlotte Ronson and Sophia Rossi are really feeling the burn of the destruction.
It turns out these stars lived in one of the buildings that collapsed, and they all took to Instagram to share pictures of the inferno that took away their beloved apartment and many memories. Posting a picture of the "hole" where her building used to be, de Matteo posted, "A hole where my NYC home of the last 22 years once stood...RIP 123 2nd Avenue."
She also posted a picture of the two buildings aflame, with members of the FDNY doing their best to get the fires under control. "NYC's finest trying to put out the flames to mine n many others apartments. Speechless...[praying] for those that are hurt," she wrote.
Fashion designer Ronson also posted a pic of her former apartment building on fire, captioning her pic, "R.I.P. 123 Second Avenue. Beyond devastating. Sending love & light. #regram @dreadematteo I love you and am so sorry beyond words.." She also included several broken heart emojis to express her sorrow. Rossi regrammed Ronson's photo, but added her own caption in addition to the designer's, writing, "Such good memories living here with @chrissiemiller @hilarykoyfman @dreadematteo @cjronson."
The seven-alarm fire has injured about 19 people, four of whom's injuries are considered critical. Other celebrities reacted on social media, tweeting their concerns and prayers for everyone affected by the blast. Jessica Veronica of The Veronicas lives down the block from the blast site and posted a couple of videos.
"An explosion just happened one block from our apartment in NYC. Terrifying," she captioned one video and then added, "Courageous Fire Fighters here in NYC. No hesitation."
Actress Alyssa Milanoalso tweeted, "You okay, New York??? Thinking of you."
