Firefighters battled a third-alarm fire in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn for nearly two hours Friday morning. Authorities say the fire broke out inside 2148 Fulton Street just before 6:15 a.m. and quickly spread through the three-story building.

The flames appeared mostly out, but flared back up after an hour of battling the blaze.

At least one firefighter was treated for minor injuries. Firefighters reported ice forming in the cold conditions. Nearly 150 firefighters were fighting the blaze.

Meanwhile, another fire was put out at 8 Raleigh Place. That fire was quickly extinguished.
