Last night, a two-alarm fire broke out at a site at N. 9th and Wythe Avenue in Brooklyn, apparently at the Rosenwach Wood Tank Company. Smoke could be seen from not only neighboring buildings but from the East Village as well. The fire was reported at around 9 p.m. and under control by 10:15 p.m. We've contacted the FDNY for details on what might have caused the fire.
