FLUSHING, Queens (WABC) -- A massive fire tore through several businesses in Queens Friday night, injuring multiple firefighters.

The incident happened on 37th Ave and Main Street in Flushing.

FDNY say the fire began in a hair salon just before midnight.

It then started to spread to an adjacent three-story building.

Seven firefighters were taken to an area hospital with injuries, but they are considered non-critical.

Fire marshals will investigate the cause of the fire.
