Firefighters got the blaze under control shortly before 8 a.m. — nearly six hours after it started. Residents said they were awoken by people shouting “fire” in the street and others who were pounding on doors.
The blaze broke out around 3:30 a.m. and quickly overtook the upper part of the 93rd Street building. It eventually spread to the two adjoining buildings.
