Fire Rips Through Clinton Hill Building; No Injuries Reported

No one was hurt when a fire swept through a building in Brooklyn on Monday morning, fire officials said.

More than 135 firefighters responded to the blaze, which the FDNY says likely started in a pizzeria at Waverly and Greene avenues in Clinton Hill before 5 a.m.

The flames spread through two apartments above the restaurant and to a dry cleaners next door.

The family in one of the apartments was on vacation, fire officials said; the woman in the other unit was able to make it out safely. 

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
