BROOKLYN - The freezing cold temperatures have made it more difficult for firefighters to battle fires across the borough.

In Borough Park, firefighters worked against the cold around 10:00 a.m. today to put out a fire on the second floor of a two-story building on 36th Street.

There were no injuries, but firefighters had a hard time going up against below zero wind chill temperatures They had to spread salt around the scene to keep themselves from falling on the slick road and sidewalk.

Other fires broke out this morning on Oliver Street at Shore Road and Ocean Parkway.

There is no word about whether the weather played a part in starting the fire.
