An overnight fire tore through a commercial building on Long Island, damaging businesses and prompting evacuations.

The flames broke out on Main Street in Huntington around 3 a.m., burning through a two-story structure used by at least four businesses.

Firefighters arrived to find heavy smoke billowing out of the building, and half a dozen departments were called in from surrounding towns to help.

A nearby apartment building was evacuated as a precaution.

The fire was brought under control within a few hours, and there are no reports of injuries.

The stretch of Main Street near Woodbury Road remains closed.
