From the Queens Gazette:
Fire marshals are looking into the cause of a stubborn, smoky fire on the afternoon of June 10 that destroyed a vacant home on 47th Street in Astoria, fire officials said.
Twenty-five fire units and 106 firefighters responded at about 4:30 p.m. to the two-alarm blaze at 31-40 47th Street that sent one firefighter to Mount Sinai Queens with burn injuries, a fire spokesperson said. Several other firefighters were treated for smoke inhalation and other injuries at the scene.
