BELLE HARBOR, Queens — Crews worked to put down a fire that broke out at a Queens home early Friday.

Authorities were called to the blaze at a two-story home on Cronston Avenue at Beach 132 Street around 1 a.m.

No injuries were immediately reported.

Firefighters believe the blaze started in the rear of the home.

Video shows flames coming from the home’s roof and windows knocked down.

Weather likely played a part in making it more difficult to put the fire out. Arctic air and gusty winds brought bitter cold temperatures to parts of the tri-state area.
