    The fire started in the basement of the Satmar Synagogue on South Eighth Street and Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg at 4:40 a.m Sunday. Firefighters from 27 fire companies responded to the blaze, which FDNY officials say appears to be electrical.
    The building sustained some fire and water damage, but police and fire officials told NBC New York that the structure is safe.
    There are also a few residential apartments on the top floors of the building, and residents were evacuated. 
    There were no reported injuries from the fire.
