CROWN HEIGHTS, BROOKLYN — A large fire erupted in a Crown Heights apartment building Thursday night, FDNY said.

The second alarm blaze erupted on the fourth floor of 572 Lincoln Place, on the corner of Franklin Avenue, just after 6 p.m., said the FDNY.

It took more than an hour for firefighters to get the fire under control, and no one was injured, the FDNY said.

Shaking and vibrating was reporting after the fire, Department of Building records show.

Four apartments on the second, third and fourth floor suffered fire, smoke and water damage with missing windows and holes in the ceiling and roof, DOB records show.
