4-Alarm Fire East Flatbush, Brooklyn, NY 09.15.2012

FDNY put out a 4-alarm fire, Box 2303, where a blaze engulfed a Brooklyn Fine Fare supermarket at 405 Remsen Avenue early Saturday afternoon. The fire apparently started in the basement of the supermarket.  All companies were withdrawn and went to an exterior firefighting operation. The blaze escalated to a four-alarm fire shortly after 2:00 p.m. before firefighters were able to get the flames under control. The FDNY said no injuries were reported.

New York City Fire Department officials are still investigating the cause of a supermarket fire that blazed in East Flatbush, Brooklyn on Saturday afternoon. Investigators say the fire started in the basement of the one-story building on Remsen Avenue.

"We had a total of four handlines stretched at any given time and in operation. It was a punishing job, as I said, and we were very fortunate that we were able to keep it in the supermarket's cellar," said FDNY Chief James Esposito.

No major injuries were reported other then the fire chief saying there were only a few smoke-related injuries.
