Fire tears through Williamsburg, Brooklyn, stores, firefighters hurt


A raging five-alarm inferno tore through multiple stores in Brooklyn Sunday, injuring two FDNY firefighters trying to put out the blaze.

Firefighters were called to 106 Lee Ave. in Williamsburg, which houses a chocolate shop, a grill and several other businesses, just before noon Sunday.

The blaze quickly reached five alarms and spread to several stores along the commercial stretch of road near Williamsburg St. East, an FDNY spokesman said. So far, 44 FDNY vehicles and 18 firefighters have responded to the scene.

Two firefighters were rushed to area hospitals — one to Wyckoff Hospital, the other to Brooklyn Hospital, the spokesman said. Their conditions were not immediately known.
