A massive two-alarm fire erupted inside a Woodside store yesterday morning, requiring more than 100 firefighters to put out the flames, according to an FDNY spokeswoman.

The fire erupted at Don’s Professional Services, located at 38-05 69th Street, near Roosevelt Ave, just before 11 am on Wednesday morning. It then spread to three neighboring stores through a shared attic, according to the FDNY.

The fire was brought under control just before 11:45 a.m.

There were no reported injuries and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.

On the recent HBO documentary on Banksy, the dopes who made the film showed that piece but listed it as being in Astoria.
