The scene of a three-alarm fire that, as of 4:40 p.m., was still being handled by first responders.

The FDNY reported a three alarm fire inside a building at 764 57th Street at around 2:19 p.m. Monday.

There have been reports of a multiple dwelling fire from the basement to the third floor. Fire officials claim that flames are also extending through electrical wires to 5618 Eighth Avenue.

FDNY reps says there are no reported injuries at this time but that firefighters are still on scene putting out the blaze.

A witness said the fire might have originated from sparking power lines due to a power outage that left thousands of homes without power in southern Brooklyn Monday afternoon.

Con Edison was seen working on power lines around 61st Street and 11th Avenue during the time of the fire.

This is a developing story. Check back for more details.
