Fire Rips Through Queens Shops, Cause Unknown

NY 1 - September 20, 2009

Investigators are still looking into the cause of a three-alarm fire Saturday that tore through several businesses in Queens.

Fire officials say flames broke out in a commercial building at 138th Avenue and Farmers Boulevard in Springfield Gardens.

The fire spread to a corner bodega, a metal and glass company, and a car service business.

"I saw the smoke on the roof and then I noticed there's a fire started and then I see these people next door calling the fire department and it doesn't look too good," said one witness.

No injuries were reported.
