Massive Long Island City Fire Destroys Warehouse, Injures 2

LONG ISLAND CITY, NEW YORK – A massive fire broke out early yesterday in an industrial Long Island City building. Two firefighters were injured and the structure was largely destroyed authorities said.

Flames erupted about 2:30 AM inside a commercial laundromat at 47-46 30th St., between 47th and 48th avenues, FDNY deputy assistant chief Chuck Downey told reporters at the scene.

At least 168 firefighters and EMS workers responded to the call for the 1-story building, where they were met with “heavy fire conditions,” Downey said.

Firefighters finally got the fire under control by 7 AM, authorities, and two of them were taken to hospitals with minor injuries: one to the shoulder-neck area, and another to the knee, Downey said.
