NEW YORK (AP) - A fire has ripped through a three-story building in Queens and spread to adjacent buildings.

The blaze broke out Thursday evening in the College Point neighborhood.

The building where it began has businesses on the ground level and apartments above.

People gathered on the street to watch as smoke and flames lit up the night sky.

Officials say several firefighters suffered minor injuries.

It’s unclear what sparked the fire.
