Fire destroys storage unit in Mott Haven
Firefighters worked tirelessly to put out a fire that burned for over 12 hours at a storage unit in Mott Haven Sunday.
Officials say the flames sparked around 12:30 a.m. inside Tuck-It-Away Self-Storage on Walton Avenue.
The fire destroyed the six-story building, but firefighters were able to prevent it from spreading to a next-door gas station.
Firefighters say that at the height of the fire, over 100 firefighters were working on putting out the flames.
News 12 spoke with unit renters who were devastated.
They say they have not been contacted by the facility and they are not sure how much if at all their insurance will cover for their belongings.
Fire officials say that two firefighters suffered minor injuries and were taken to Jacobi Medical Center.
