ALBANY, N.Y. -- Firefighters say a fire broke out at about 8 p.m. Thursday night at Rensselaer Iron and Steel, located at 35 Riverside Ave.

The Fire Chief Foust says the flames started in a pile of steel and somehow spread to the building.

Crews have since pulled the steel pile apart and watered down the hot spots. The chief says there was a high level of concern when the call first came in due to explosions.

He says one firefighter was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
