A three-alarm fire is burning through an auto service center in Brooklyn.
The fire broke out around 10:30 a.m. Monday on Empire Boulevard in the Crown Heights section. The fire is burning through the cars in the building and in a lot.
It is burning not far from Medgar Evers College.
Eyewitness News Reporter Diana Rocco heard what sounded like small explosions coming from inside the building.
Some 140 FDNY firefighters responded to the scene. Witnesses and some people who work across the street say that this is a car repair and rental business that opened within the last six months.
Witnesses say it only took moments for this fire to ignite and spread.
