King’s Plaza Mall in Brooklyn Catches on Fire

NEW-YORK-FIRE

A massive fire is raging through a parking garage in Brooklyn, leaving at least 21 firefighters and civilians injured.

It's not clear how the fire started.

- The Fire Department of NY says dozens of vehicles caught fire in a mall parking garage, sending thick black smoke through a Brooklyn neighborhood.

Stores remain closed as firefighters continue to battle the blaze.

Cleveland Browns to release Josh Gordon
There's all kinds of speculation surrounding the Browns' decision to part ways with Gordon. Cleveland announced Saturday it plans to release the 27-year-old wide receiver.

Video showed the blaze sending heavy smoke billowing onto Flatbush Ave. and the surrounding area. "There are now 2 non-life-threatening injuries to civilians, and 15 non-life-threatening injuries to firefighters, reported", said the FDNY on Twitter. "Hard to imagine there won't be some concern of structural damage". Fire officials said that the dealership's vehicle were among the ones that burned but they couldn't give an exact number.

Police have released a photo of a man wanted in connection to Monday morning's fire that injured 21 at the Kings Plaza Mall parking garage in Brooklyn. Fire officials said that they were likely tires exploding on the cars that burned. "FDNY on scene. Avoid area", a spokesperson for the mall tweeted.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, Nigro said, adding that the heat, confined space and toxic smoke make this an especially challenging fire to fight.

The FDNY issued a warning to people with heart or lung conditions, such as asthma, to avoid the area, stay indoors and keep windows closed due to smoke.
