GREENPOINT, Brooklyn – Authorities said four people are injured following a massive fire that ripped through multiple buildings in Brooklyn overnight.

Fighting the freezing temperatures, more than 140 firefighters contained the "intense" fire on Diamond Street minutes before 1 a.m. Monday, FDNY said.  The blaze started shortly after 10:40 p.m. Sunday on 49 Diamond St. and later spread to all three floors, and then to two other buildings.
