After breaking out at 175-15 Hiawatha Ave., the second-alarm blaze spread to an adjacent building, fire officials said.

The fire broke out at 12:28, and three minutes later, the Bravest were at the scene, battling the flames, the spokesman said.

A total of 106 firefighters and 25 units responded to the fire, which was declared under control at 1:40 p.m., according to the FDNY.

Officials said one firefighter also sustained very minor injuries.
