The FDNY battled a two-alarm fire on Main Street in Flushing early Thursday morning that broke out in a row of Asian restaurants. Over a hundred firefighters and 25 units responded to the location along 60th Avenue after smoke was reported to be emanating from Kung Fu Xiao Long Bao just before 6:20 a.m.
Arriving units observed a column of smoke and heavy fire through the roof of Kung Fu and a Chinese takeout joint next door. Firefighters attacked the blaze with an aggressive interior attack while utilizing four hose lines to knock down the main body of the fire. Searches throughout the involved commercial businesses yielded negative results. The fire was placed under control just after 8:30 a.m. and one firefighter suffered a minor injury and was transported to New York Presbyterian Hospital/Queens for treatment, according to the FDNY.
The Fire Marshal’s Office will determine the case and origin of the fire.
