A three-alarm blaze struck the Strawberry Farms supermarket in Whitestone last night.

The charred interior of the Strawberry Farms market in Whitestone is all that’s left of the business and several neighboring storefronts after a three-alarm fire on Tuesday night.

The Fire Department confirmed that the family-owned supermarket, located at 24-11 150th St. near Willets Point Boulevard, burst into flames at 9:05 p.m. More than 180 firefighters rushed to the scene and extinguished the raging blaze by 2:09 a.m.

According to authorities, four firefighters suffered minor injuries and were treated at NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens Hospital. No civilians were reported injured.

Firefighters and police officers at the scene could not disclose any additional information to QNS.

Bystanders who stood in front of the local grocery store were also hesitant to talk.

The next-door M&M Dry Cleaners and laundromat were also completely destroyed by the flames.

The cause of this fire is under investigation.

I hope that the stores will rebound and open soon. These stores are essential for the neighborhood.

There are many people that live outside the neighborhood, that came and shopped at Strawberry Farms because of their great prices and great produce. I will paciently wait for a newer and even better Stawberry Farms.
