As five-alarm fires go, Tuesday morning’s inferno at the site of Delshah’s Dorian condo development doesn’t seem to have been one of the worst.

No one was injured in the blaze, which broke out at 3 a.m. at 221 West 17th Street in Chelsea and engulfed the fourth, fifth and six floors of the building. A fire watch company was on site at the time. By around 7 a.m., the FDNY had fully contained the blaze, according to a news release from the developer.

The cause of the fire is still unknown. Structural engineers and officials from the city’s Department of Buildings have inspected what remains of the building, and determined that it appears to be structurally sound.

The site was fully insured, and the developer plans proceed with work, according to the release.

Delshah bought the site for $26.4 million last year. The Dorian is slated to be a 40,000-square-foot luxury condo building, with 14 units including full-floor penthouses on the upper four floors. – Ariel Stulberg
