Massive Fire Erupts in Brooklyn Lumber Storage Warehouse, Injuring 5 Firefighters (VIDEO)

On Tuesday, a massive fire broke out in a lumber storage warehouse in Brooklyn, New York.

At approximately 10:51 a.m., a fire broke out in a one-story lumber storage building at 335 Hewes Street and quickly spread to a neighboring three-story commercial building, according to authorities.

“There is a lot of stock within these buildings and that’s what’s taken so long to extinguish these fires. It’s a heavy load of combustibles,” Chief John Hodgens said.

“FDNY Members are fighting a 4-alarm fire at 304 Hewes Street in Brooklyn. The call came in at 10:51 am. When units arrived, they found fire in a large commercial building containing a lot of lumber. The fire spread to an adjacent 3-story building, There is no report of injuries,” the New York Fire Department wrote on social media.

FDNY said in another update that 5 fighters suffered minor injuries.

There were no occupants in the building, according to ABC 7.

The fire raged for several hours before it was finally contained about 5 p.m.

They said the cause of the fire is under investigation.
