Huge 7 alarm fire in Williamsburg burns for hours
The Fire Department was called out here at 4:30 in the morning to put out a blaze in this warehouse. Which they extinguished within an hour-and-a-half. But by 6:30 - there was another fire. When they got here - this time - the building - which housed tons and tons of paper records - was fully engulfed. It went to seven alarms - and more than 10 hours after it started - it still wasn't under control. Fire officials say both fires are under investigation. It's not yet known if they are related.
I covered the story for 1010 WINS.
