A
fire broke out this morning at 80 Devoe Street between Leonard and
Lorimer streets in Williamsburg, according to a staffer from The Real Deal
who was on the scene and first noticed black smoke and heard people
screaming as they exited the building down the fire escape at around
8:30 am, when firefighters first arrived on the scene.

Around 100 firefighters arrived at the four-story, four-unit
building and had the two-alarm fire under control by 9:01 am, according
to a spokesperson from the Fire Department of New York. It is not yet
clear what caused the fire. There was one minor injury, the
spokesperson said.

City records show no recent building violations or any recent
construction permit filings. The building owners are listed as Antonia
Guadagno and Rosemarie Palazzo in city records.

Both the FDNY and the Department of Buildings have launched investigations into the cause of the fire.

The building owners were not immediately available for comment.
