Massive Fire Consumes Greenpoint Warehouse
Fire engulfed a warehouse in Greenpoint early Friday morning.
More than 130 firefighters rushed to smother a massive fire that broke out in a Greenpoint warehouse early this morning.
The three-alarm fire engulfed the industrial building at Vandam Street near Nassau Avenue at 2:24 am, and a small army of smoke eaters battled the blaze for three hours before finally calling the all clear at 5:19 am, according to a spokesman for New York’s Bravest.
Two firefighters suffered minor injuries from the flames and were transported to Wyckoff Hospital, according to firefighters. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
The Van Dam Street warehouse is home to several tenants, including Sweetland Candy Wholesale Corporation.
