BROOKLYN - A fast-moving fire ripped through a Bedford-Stuyvesant building that was under renovation this morning.

Fire officials say flames engulfed the vacant four-story building on Stockton Street, just off of Myrtle Avenue.

Officials say it took more than 100 firefighters to extinguish the two-alarm fire.

Neighbors say the building has been vacant for quite a while until recently, when builders began renovations.

No injuries were reported. Fire officials say they have yet to determine the cause of the fire, and they have not yet ruled out arson.
