"A big fire coming from my building and onto Broadway and people were hysterical and that's where it all started", said John Farias, a resident. Another nearby building was also evacuated.

So far, no injuries have been reported, an FDNY spokesman said.
22 families have been given shelter in the meantime. "It was a wind driven fire that rapidly pushed the fire into the top floor, into the cockloft area which is the space between the top floor ceiling and the underside of the roof", FDNY Chief of Department, James Leonard said.
