Update: New York police recovered two bodies from the rubble of the building that exploded in the East Village. The remains have not yet been identified. Two people were initially reported missing after Thursday's blast that resulted in the collapse of three buildings.
NEW YORK CITY - “Sopranos” star Drea de Matteo is one of many New Yorkers who lost her home in the East Village explosion Thursday.
De Matteo spoke about her heartbreak as she posted a photo on Instagram of her view from across the street as FDNY battled the flames at 123 2nd Avenue.
The post read, “A hole where my NYC home of the last 22 years once stood … RIP 123 2nd Avenue.”
The actress lived at what was once 123 2nd Avenue for the last 22 years. Thankfully, she was able to make out and was not hurt in the blast.
But that's not the case for 20 others who were hurt, four of them are in critical condition and two others are unaccounted for.
Four firefighters and an EMS worker suffered minor injuries.
