Sopranos actress Drea de Matteo’s apartment was among those destroyed in the devastating East Village blast on Thursday that caused the collapse of three buildings and damaged a fourth, according to the Associated Press.
The actress posted photos on Instagram of the buildings as firefighters attempted to put out the blaze with the caption, “A hole where my NYC home of the last 22 years once stood…RIP 123 2nd Avenue.”
According to the AP, the Red Cross said the buildings had approximately 50 apartments. The “gas-related explosion” left at least 22 people injured and at least two unaccounted for, with more than 250 firefighters on hand to assist in putting out the seven-alarm fire, according to The New York Times.
