A fire broke out in the Atlantic Terminal apartments in Brooklyn on Thursday afternoon.

At just after 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 1, FDNY units responded to the fire, located at 487 Carton Ave. Firefighters encountered heavy fire out the windows of a 15th-floor apartment at the 31-floor building.

Firefighters hauled multiple lengths of hose up the stairs and encountered six e-bikes on fire in the apartment. The fire was extended to an adjacent apartment.
