Update: 9:27 p.m.: The Red Cross of Greater New York reports that they provided shelter for six residents forced out of their homes by the fire. Others may have also been forced out, but found shelter with friends or family.
Update: 3:31 p.m.: The FDNY says that one civilian had minor unspecified injuries but refused medical attention.
A fire broke out on the fifth floor of a Lincoln Place apartment building Wednesday afternoon.
There were no injuries from the blaze, which broke out just before 1:31 p.m. at 519 Lincoln Place between Classon and Franklin avenues, an FDNY spokesman said.
The flames spread to the area between the fifth and sixth floors of the seven-story building, which allows it to spread rapidly.
The fire was classified as a two-alarm fire, meaning that almost twice as many firefighters (100 instead of 60) responded. It was put under control shortly after 2 p.m., the spokesman said.
