Water From Putting Out the Brooklyn Warehouse Fire Leaves Williamsburg Looking Like North of the Wall in Game of Thrones

By now you have probably heard of the massive 7-alarm warehouse fire in a paper storage warehouse in Williamsburg that filled the sky with thick, white and gray smoke on Saturday. The fire took nearly 24 hours to control, with multiple fire boats being deployed as well as busloads of fire fighters and volunteers dispatched, and it still smolders.

The aftermath of this horrible fire is actually quite beautiful, with the freezing New York City weather causing the water from the fire fight to freeze into huge icicles, covering a poor truck and motorcycle in thick, heavy ice. It’s like a scene out of Game of Thrones… minus the White Walkers.
