Gawker reported that comedian Demetri Martin’s apartment was among those damaged in a fire in the West Village yesterday. Although Gawker says in the headline that Demetri’s stuff is all gone, I’ve since corresponded with the comic who said:
thanks for writing to me.
i was pretty lucky in the whole fire situation.
some of my neighbors lost everything. i lost only part of my roof.
i have to find a new place to live for a while, but other than that i didn’t lose any stuff.
Obviously, it’s good to hear he’s OK and hopefully, so are his neighbors, despite their loses.
