NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — An extra-alarm fire broke out Tuesday evening in a warehouse in St. Albans, Queens.

The fire broke out just after 7 p.m. in the one-story, commercial brick building at 104-03 180th St. in Queens, officials told CBS2.

The fire was later raised to a third alarm, officials said.

The roof of the building collapsed, and fire had engulfed the entire building even when firefighters arrived, officials said. Heavy smoke slowed Long Island Rail Road trains at the scene, officials said.

It took the 140 firefighters about two hours to bring the fire under control, officials said.

One firefighter suffered minor injuries, officials told 1010 WINS.

As of late Tuesday night, hot spots continued to burn in the building.
