13 fire departments battle Uniondale fire

It took 13 fire departments more than four hours to get a building fire under control in Uniondale this morning, officials say.

Investigators say the flames broke out at the Thrifty Beverage Center on Nassau Road just before 6 a.m.

Area roadways were closed and traffic on the nearby Southern State Parkway was snarled while firefighters worked to douse the blaze.

Police say no injuries were reported. They are still investigating what caused the fire.
