September 17, 2018

NEW YORK (AP) — The Fire Department of New York says dozens of vehicles were damaged in a parking garage fire that sent thick black smoke billowing over a Brooklyn neighborhood.

The department says 21 people were injured Monday as the fire raged in the Mill Basin neighborhood. All but three of them were firefighters. None of the injuries was considered life-threatening.

The fire broke out on two floors of the four-story garage at around 9 a.m. The Kings Plaza mall was closed as a result.

It took nearly three hours to get the fire under control. The cause is under investigation.
