An orthodontists office is in ruins after a blaze tore through the duct system from the second floor to the roof.

Flames damaged several floors of a Woodhaven building during a two-alarm fire that broke out on Christmas Eve.

The two-alarm blaze broke out just before midnight on Dec. 24 and moved through the three story mixed-use building at the corner of Jamaica Avenue and Woodhaven Boulevard.

According to information provided by the City Council Speaker’s office, the flames spread through the building’s duct system and the roof; photos of the damage appeared on the Project Woodhaven Facebook page.

Photos depict broken windows on the side of the building facing Woodhaven Boulevard from the second floor up, and a charred interior in the space occupied by an orthodontist’s office called Woodhaven Braces.

A Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen with the address 92-20 Jamaica Ave., as well as a bodega are located on the ground floor of the structure.

There are no reports of any injuries or deaths, according to an email alert from the City Council Speaker’s office to City Councilman Eric Ulrich. The FDNY had reported the fire as under control by about 1:49 a.m. on Dec. 25, the alert noted.

FDNY did not respond to a QNS request for further information; the cause of the fire is not yet known.
