Six firefighters were injured in a massive four-alarm blaze that destroyed a row of stores in upper Manhattan Sunday, officials said.

The fire started in a business on Nagle Ave. near Thayer St. in Inwood and quickly spread to several neighboring stores around 10 a.m.

It took around 100 firefighters to beat back the flames, which were brought under control around 2 p.m.

The injured smoke-eaters were treated at an area hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
