Brooklyn Fire Spreads to Three Buildings and Injures Two Firefighters

Two firefighters were injured at a massive fire that spread to three Brooklyn buildings Saturday, reports the NY Daily News (

The fire broke out on the first floor of an abandoned building at 1138 Bushwick Ave. near Putnam Ave. in Bushwick at about 6 p.m. and quickly spread to the adjoining structures.

More than 130 smoke eaters fought the fire, which was declared under control at about 7:30 p.m.

Two firefighters were taken to Wyckoff Heights Medical Center with minor injuries. No other injuries were reported, officials said.

FDNY Deputy Chief James Smithwick called the fire “suspicious” and said a handful of people seen outside the building when the fire broke out probably know what sparked it.
