Hmmm.. Massive Fire Rips Through NY Warehouse Destroying 4 Million Boxes Of City Records

 

 

(N.Morgan) A massive fire started around 6:30 AM on Saturday at the Williamsburg warehouse near the East River in Brooklyn New York.

 

 

Firefighters fought the blaze for over 8 hours in the effort of putting out the flames.

 

4 million boxes of government records were destroyed, including records for the city's public hospitals, New York State courts and the Administration for Children's Services.

 

 

 

Singed records could be seen blowing in the wind and were turning up blocks away.

 

 

A Health and Hospitals Corporation spokesman said the warehouse stored only older medical records.

 

 

“As an early adopter of electronic medical records systems, HHC keeps duplicates of vital patient records in electronic form and we do not anticipate this will affect our operations,” spokesman Ian Michaels said in a statement.

 

 

Smoke-eaters were pouring water on the fire both from tower ladders and FDNY boats. Heavy winds and temperatures rising only into the 20s were making the job more difficult, officials said.

 

 

There were no reported injuries.

 

 

The nearby Star Energy oil refinery was evacuated as a precaution, sources said.
