I was getting confused last night - twitter BFD Alerts was reporting this fire on E 7th, and at the same time a different fire on W 7th. Was BFD screwing addresses, or did 7th street really have two different fires last night?

Just this one, AFAIK. It rang 4 alarms, but no one I saw on twitter was reporting another fire nearby.
