JAMAICA, Queens — Power has been restored to a Queens apartment complex after a generator that supplies power to the area caught fire.
The fire broke out around 3:30 p.m., in an outside generator at Rochdale Village, located at Bedell Street and 133rd Avenue in Jamaica.
Firefighters say by 6 p.m., power had been restored to the buildings.
All 60 elevators in the 20 buildings will have to be individually powered back up. Until then, residents will have to use the stairs.
Fifty gallons of fuel spilled from the generator that caught fire. The FDNY HazMat team is cleaning it up.
No injuries have been reported.
