JAMAICA, QUEENS — Firefighters battled a blaze early Tuesday morning in a Jamaica, Queens manufacturing building, an FDNY spokesman said.

The fire broke out shortly before 2 a.m. in a two-story factory building on 149th Street near 95th Avenue, the spokesman said. Fire response was upgraded to two alarms, meaning more than 100 fire and ems personnel operated at the scene.

Videos from the scene shared by the Citizen app show fire engines lining the blocks surrounding the factory.

The fire was placed under control at 3:09 a.m., an FDNY spokesman said. Nobody was injured during the blaze, the spokesman said.
