Early-Morning Fire Damages Flushing Buildings

"Eyewitness News is told the wind-whipped blaze broke out inside the buildings on Roosevelt Avenue, near Main Street, just after 2:30 a.m.

Heavy flames were seen shooting through the windows and roof of the structures, destroying six businesses.

Firefighters tried to battle the blaze from inside but were forced back. Heavy winds are said to have helped spread the fire."

Water that was used to put out the fire leaked onto the tracks of the 7 train, interrupting service. It has since resumed, although buses were still being rerouted as late as 7:30 this morning. Check out the MTA's Service Alerts for updates.
