    Dozens of firefighters battled a fire in a vacant building on Governors Island Tuesday.

    The fire began in a two-story structure that was once a former residence. It is believed to have started in the attic.

    Many firefighters had to get to the island by ferry, and three FDNY boats were also helping.

    No injuries were reported.
