Harlem five-alarm fire blazes through business

A five-alarm fire broke out in a store on Lenox Avenue just after 3 a.m. and spread to others in the large, one-story building in Harlem, New York on November 3. Nine hours after flames roared through a row of storefronts on Lenox Avenue, firefighters and investigators combed through the charred remains in a search for clues as to what started the blaze. It took more than four hours and nearly 200 firefighters and emergency personnel to bring the fire under control.
