A fatal fire in 30 Richardson Street left one dead, one missing, and 10 displaced after it tore through the three story building up through the roof.

It took nearly 200 firefighters to contain the fire, which broke out just before 2AM.

Investigators are still trying to figure out what sparked the fire but one neighbor told WCBS2 that “It sounded like a bomb went off or something — massive flames coming out of the building and then the fire trucks.” 

The building is located one block south of McCarren Park by Lorimer St.



Update: Missing person has been found dead.
