Last month’s fire at Rash in Bushwick has been declared arson. According to reports, the man behind the arson attack John Lhota, 24, has been charged with arson for his role that left the club in shambles.
“It was so dark and so smoky, I didn’t know where the door was,” staffer Tyler Glenn told Rolling Stone earlier this week after being released from a hospital for smoke inhalation. “I was banging on the walls.”
If convicted he faces a minimum of 7 years in prison and a maximum of 40 years incarcerated.
