Victims of East Flatbush fire say their apartments have been looted

Residents who didn't lose their property in a fire at an East 29th Street apartment building are now being forced to worry about a new issue: looters.

A number of residents say that they've had up to $10,000 in property stolen from their apartments.

The management company says looters appeared to have entered though the boarded-up windows. Guards posted at the property did confront the looters before larger items such as televisions were stolen, but residents report smaller items such as jewelry and clothing were taken.

Residents were allowed back into the building to clear out what they could, but they say that the looting is adding insult to injury.
