Firefighters are on scene responding to a four-alarm fire which broke out within a commercial building in Flushing this afternoon, authorities said.

According to the FDNY Twitter, firefighters continue to fight the blaze at 135-42 Roosevelt Ave., near the intersection of Main Street and Roosevelt Avenue.


According to a social media post by the Flushing Business Improvement District, a section of Roosevelt Avenue was shut down to allow firefighters to address the situation.

Two firefighters were treated for non-life-threatening injuries while battling the blaze, sources said.

According to an FDNY spokesperson, the fire is still under investigation at this time.

The NYC Transit Twitter account reports that smoke and water conditions at the site are causing delays to 7 train service during the afternoon rush hour. Visit the MTA’s website for the latest details.
