NEW YORK CITY — A massive fire broke out Tuesday afternoon at the new NYPD academy that is under construction in Queens, authorities said.
The fire department was called at 1:37 p.m. to the new police compound in College Point in an area bounded by College Point Boulevard, Ulmer Street and 28th and 31st avenues.
The blaze went to a second alarm at the 10-story building just minutes later, but it was under control by 2:41 p.m., officials said.
No one was injured, according to police, who said the floor that caught fire contained only construction debris.
The new facility, which is still under construction, is expected to be completed later this year.
