NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — An extra-alarm fire broke out Friday evening in a Harlem building housing a fried chicken resident.
Six firefighters were injured — one seriously — in the three-alarm blaze, which the FDNY said broke out around 7 p.m. at Mama’s Fried Chicken, at 300 W. 155th St.
As of 10:30 p.m., one firefighter had suffered a serious, but non-life-threatening injury. The other five suffered minor injuries.
More than 30 units and 100 firefighters were sent to the scene, and used tower ladders to extinguish the fire from the outside.
But the fire was not under control as of 10:30 p.m., and had spread to another building.
