A fire at 26 St. Marks Place was reported at 10:03 a.m. today, said a spokesperson for the F.D.N.Y. Water was on the fire within ten minutes and it was under control by 10:33, the fire department said. When The Local arrived on the scene between Second and Third Avenues, items of singed clothing as well as an office chair were seen being tossed out of a window on the third story, where the fire started. The F.D.N.Y. said that it was not able to reveal the cause of the fire at this time; no one has been taken to the hospital as of yet. We’ll have updates if and when they become available.

Update | 11:05 a.m. Battalion Chief Ed Carney said the blaze was a mattress fire that broke out in a front apartment on the third floor and was extinguished within fifteen minutes. One person refused medical attention and will be taken care of by the Red Cross.
