Fire At Power Plant Knocks Out Electricity To Apartments In Coney Island

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- A Brooklyn community was without power Thursday morning due to a fire at a Coney Island power plant.

The fire department said it started just after 9 a.m. on the roof of the facility on West 6th Street.

The plant supplies power for the Warbasse Houses, a self-contained development of more than 2,500 apartments.

It took firefighters about an hour to get the fire under control.

No injuries were reported.
