Firefighters extinguished a one-alarm fire between two vacant buildings on Balmy Street shortly after 8 p.m. Tuesday, authorities said.
It took 45 firefighters to put out the flames at 96 Balmy St. (at 25th Street) and the adjacent building, said Assistant Fire Chief Tom Siragusa.
There appeared to be no injuries, and the damage was contained to the two buildings. Police briefly closed 25th Street between Folsom and Harrison streets as firefighters investigated the cause.
