NEW YORK — Boosur Meat and Deli, located at 5215 Main Street in South Fallsburg, was destroyed in a multi-alarm fire which broke out Friday evening, but the owner is continuing his catering from its separate location, and hopes to reopen the retail operation in the near future.

Fallsburg Fire Department responded to the blaze at 5:44 p.m., shortly after the beginning of Shabbos, and received mutual aid from the Woodridge and Monticello Fire Departments. A second alarm was sounded which brought other fire companies from around Sullivan and Ulster Counties, who battled the fire for six hours before extinguishing it.

Ten fire companies joined the effort to put out the fire, and medics from several units responded to ensure that any injuries would be addressed.

The fire engulfed the entire structure, which will be demolished in the near future.

The building, built in 1922, has been used for several years by the popular takeout store which has remained open all year round for the last few years.

Three people reported minor injuries, and three people were displaced by the fire.

Yitzchak Hirsch, the proprietor of Boosur, told Hamodia that he is able to continue his catering operation, which is located in a separate facility, and he is already exploring several possibilities to re-establish his retail operation in the near future.
