FDNY: Light Fixture to Blame for 3-Alarm Fire in Brownsville

NY 1 - July 22, 2018

The FDNY says a light fixture is to blame for a three-alarm fire in Brooklyn last night.

The blaze broke out just before 8 p.m. Friday in a sneaker shop on Rutland Road and East 98th Street in Brownsville.

It took more than 100 firefighters nearly two hours to get the flames under control.

The FDNY said Friday night that three firefighters at the scene were treated by EMS.

Service on the 3 train was temporarily disrupted.

Fire officials say smoke alarms were not present.
