An elderly woman was injured in a quick-moving fire Friday night that spread across two buildings on the Upper West Side, including one that houses a popular restaurant. The fire started on the third floor of 509 Amsterdam Ave., then got into a shaft and shot up through the fifth floor, then spread to the building next door, no. 511, FDNY Chief of Department James Leonard said.  With a firehouse around the corner, firefighters were able to get there in three minutes. At the height of the blaze, 170 firefighters were on the scene, Leonard said.  Cellphone video taken by a neighbor across the street showed flames engulfing an entire apartment on the upper floor and shooting straight through the roof.

"People had their kids, running."  John Doyle of the City Island Civic Association says the State Liquor Authority is investigating the fight and the establishment, but adds it takes significant evidence to revoke a liquor license.  Marjorie Velazquez of Community Board 10 says the SLA should consider doing it.  "This is a restaurant where many families come with small children," she said. Neighbor Joseph Fitzroy, who lives across the street, worries about his own children's safety.  "Anytime a lot of people here, always incid
