NY Daily News - December 07, 2017


A fire raged for hours in a Brooklyn hardware store early Thursday, injuring one person.

Firefighters responded to the four-alarm blaze at Fulton St. near Franklin Ave. in Bedford-Stuyvesant around 5:10 a.m., according to authorities. There are three floors of apartments above the hardware store.

One person suffered non-life threatening injuries, FDNY officials said.

More than three hours later, the fire continued to burn.

The inferno drew spectators among morning commuters but nearby subways remained open. The fire sent giant plumes of smoke billowing into the sky.
