A six-alarm fire is raging in Williamsburg, and firefighters are attempting to put it out.
Just before noon on Sunday, firefighters arrived at the scene near Lee Avenue and Hooper Street.

According to the authorities, two firefighters were hurt while putting out the fires.
According to officials, they are in a serious but stable state. Orders were given for the other firefighters within the structure to leave so that outside firefighters could battle the fire.
