It's Forest Hills house burning season
A large fire engulfed a house being built in an affluent Queens neighborhood Tuesday evening, leaving behind a charred frame of a home three months into construction.
The two-alarm fire broke out at the house at 66th Avenue and 108th Street in Forest Hills, shortly after a construction crew left the site, according to the construction manager.
Video from the scene showed intense flames shooting from the site, sending up thick up plumes of smoke.
The house was being built by a Queens millionaire for his son, according to authorities. The home was three months into construction.
