STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- The FDNY responded Wednesday to an electrical fire at a three-story, multi-family house in St. George.

Smoke reportedly emanating from the outside of 48 St. Marks Place drew a large emergency response, which temporarily slowed traffic on the narrow, two-way residential street.

No injuries were reported.

A dozen FDNY units and about 60 firefighters were dispatched to the scene, an FDNY spokesman said.

The incident was placed under control within about 30 minutes, according to emergency radio transmissions.
