An e-bike shop, Fly Wing E-Bike, has caught fire in Sunnyside. There is no current cause for the fire, which is at the intersection of 39th Place and 47th Avenue, as the Queens Ledger awaits updates from the police on the scene.
The one-alarm fire with additional units began approximately at 6:30 p.m, according to two sources who live near the shop.
Ahmed Zaiean, 54, said that he smelt tires burning and thought originally that it was coming from his apartment. Once he realized it was not his home he said he “definitely know it was the bike shop.”
The video below, from the Citizen App, shows the fire underway.
A building adjacent to Fly Wing E-Bike, 39-29 47th Ave, was broken into by the FDNY in order to put out the fire.
This is a developing story.
