HARLEM — Fire broke out at a vacant building on Morningside Avenue just one day after a three-alarm blaze tore through the structure, authorities said.

Monday's fire at 92 Morningside Ave. was small and put out quickly after responders received a call about 5 p.m., the fire department said.

But the blaze on Sunday, which started about 2:30 a.m., took more than 100 firefighters nearly five hours to put out.

"Building on the corner is a raging inferno," tweeted Tobias McGuigan Sunday. "Smoke and flames are crazy intense. Hope everyone is ok there."

A fire official said both blazes were under investigation.
