This is the apartment complex of post-racial America: Yesterday morning a faulty light in 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan's large aquarium (home to his pet shark) set off a small fire in his Upper West Side home. Morgan wasn't there at the time, but the apartment's sprinkler system (and the timely arrival of the FDNY) extinguished the blaze quickly, keeping the fish safe. Unfortunately, Morgan's neighbors weren't so lucky. According to The View's Sherri Shepherd (a frequent 30 Rock guest star), the sprinkler system flooded her apartment. Shepherd told The New York Post: "I love my husband... he's my TV husband. And if any of my clothes got messed up, I'm sure Tracy will pay for them." And if not, perhaps the shark will.
