Firefighters are currently battling a five-alarm blaze that sparked in Great Kills Park on Staten Island more than three hours ago.

According to an FDNY spokesperson, the fire ignited around 1:16 p.m., though it's since metastasized into a roaring conflagration requiring the efforts of 44 trucks and 200 firefighters on the scene.

No injuries have been reported, and no buildings are in danger, though the spokesman added that the fire has been particularly difficult to tame thanks to strong winds.

And the smoke has been carried far on the aforementioned winds.

Notify NYC also issued the following alert:

The NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene advises avoiding smoke exposure from brush fires by closing windows while indoors and reducing outdoor activity where smoke is present. People with heart or breathing conditions such as asthma may be more sensitive and should seek immediate medical attention if they experience a worsening of their condition, shortness of breath, or chest pains.
