Flames erupted at a Whitestone auto body shop.

A Whitestone auto body shop erupted in flames late Saturday night, fire officials and residents said.

More than 100 firefighters responded to a two-alarm fire at 150-15 14th Road, the site of Whitestone Collision, at 11:13 p.m. on November 30, according to the FDNY. It was under control by 12:20 p.m.

There were no reported injuries, an FDNY spokesperson said.

“The fire was huge,” said Devon O’Connor, president of the Welcome to Whitestone Civic Association. “Whitestone Collision is on 14th Road, and I saw smoke down by 11th Avenue.”

The civic leader said firefighters filled the street to extinguish flames at the 1.5-story car body shop around midnight.

Nearby residents posted photos on Facebook of billowing smoke coming from the blazing building.

O’Connor said several ambulances were on scene but he “didn’t see anyone hurt.”

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
