GERRITSEN BEACH, Brooklyn (WABC) -- Firefighters worked to get a massive brush fire under control in Brooklyn.
The fire broke out just before 3 p.m. Monday, spreading across a few hundred feet of shoreline near Gerritsen Ave and Gotham Ave. in Gerritsen Beach.
It was a challenge for firefighters to reach the flames through the trees, so they had to fight the flames by boat.
The fire did not extend to any buildings.
No injuries have been reported.
