A fire ripped through a car wash in Flatlands on Jan. 13, but didn’t injure anyone.

The blaze at Utica Avenue Farragut Road began around 7 am, according to a fire department spokesman.

Over one hundred firefighters responded to the two-alarm fire, according to the spokesman.

Nobody was injured in the inferno, but it thoroughly gutted the building.

The cause is still unknown pending an investigation, the spokesman said.
