EAST NEW YORK - Fire officials were on the scene of a two-alarm fire at a warehouse in Brooklyn Tuesday.

It happened at a warehouse on Essex Street in East New York.

The FDNY says it responded to reports of heavy smoke around 4 a.m.

Officials say no one was injured, and they are still investigating the cause of the fire.

There was also a separate house fire in Brownsville.  Officials say that fire started on the first floor around 10 a.m. and quickly spread to the second floor.

Officials say the cold weather made things extra difficult for firefighters responding to the scene.

Two firefighters were hurt.  One of them was hurt after slipping and falling on ice. Both of them are expected to be OK.
