Just another day in beautiful New York, the friendliest and safest place in the world. Via Fox5:

An LGBTQ+ bar in Brooklyn will remain closed as officials investigate the shocking arson that severely damaged the location while patrons were inside. On Sunday, someone walked into Rash Bar on Willoughby Avenue in Bushwick, poured gasoline on the floor, and lit it on fire. The fire caused an explosion, according to a statement on the bar’s newly created GoFundMe page.

Two employees suffered injuries and were treated at a local hospital. There were no reports of injuries to patrons. The arsonist ran out of the bar.

As of post time, the bar’s GoFundMe has raised over $50k.
