NEW YORK – A fire that broke out in a Williamsburg warehouse became a raging inferno on January 31 and there is fear the building might now collapse. The response to the blaze on a bitter cold and windy morning included a fire boat in the East River.

The six-alarm fire drew upon Fire Department of New York resources from as far away as Long Island City. A car fire around the corner from the headquarters of The National Herald called over Engine Company 320 from Francis Lewis Blvd. on the far side of Queens. Residents and workers nearby reported hearing a bang before the car caught fire, which a fireman said began under the hood.

In Brooklyn, “Strong winds carried ash and soot that fell from above several blocks away from the waterfront blaze at North 11th Street… No injuries have been reported yet, officials said,” the New York Post reported.

“I smelled this burning smell and I looked up and saw all of this smoke billowing,” said Heather Schmidt.

“I’m about a mile away and the smoke was very thick all the way back there…It’s crazy…I smelled the smoke at about 6:30 am,” said Anthony Charles.

The Post wrote “He was on the corner of North 11th St. and Wythe Ave. and flying a drone about 200 feet above trying to catch footage of the blaze.”
