MARINE PARK, Brooklyn (WABC) — Firefighters battled a seven-alarm fire after several cars went up in flames inside the Kings Plaza Shopping Center parking garage in Brooklyn.
The vehicles burned on the second and third floors of the parking garage in Marine Park. Officials say there were as many as 120 cars being stored in the structure by a local car dealer.
Investigators want to question a man caught on surveillance video leaving the Kings Plaza shopping center parking lot before Monday morning’s fire. The unidentified man was last seen wearing a white shirt, dark pants and dark-colored footwear.
Eighteen firefighters and three civilians were being treated for smoke inhalation.
“None of these 21 injuries is life-threatening or critical, everyone is stable,” the FDNY said. “Our members have various levels of smoke inhalation, heat exhaustion, working under those conditions. Smoke and heat, wearing what they wear, one can only imagine what they are going through.”
Kings Plaza is currently closed due to the fire and smoke conditions in and around the mall.
Thankfully there were no deaths or critical injuries. Someone’s going to have a big insurance bill however…
