Last Saturday, giant clouds of smoke rose from a 7-alarm fire that destroyed a warehouse and floated across Brooklyn and into Manhattan. Over 50 units, almost 300 firefighters and help from the marine unit were called in to extinguish the flames in Williamsburg.
The single-digit temperatures and strong winds made this fire particularly difficult for fighters to contain. No injuries were reported, and no dangerous toxins appear to have come from the flames.
By Sunday, everything in firehose shot of the warehouse — a motorcycle, cars parked on the street, and even firefighters’ helmets and suits — were crystallized in a frosty coating and adorned with icicles. Here are some chilling photos of the events that took place.
