At least 18 firefighters have been injured, and an additional three civilians; although all of those reportedly hurt are expected to survive.

In what is being described as a massive 7-alarm fire, the wind can be seen billowing smoke high above the tallest buildings into the sky.

It's a fire that with the unusually high temperatures this September is now proving as difficult to combat for first responders.

The flames swept through a parking garage in Brooklyn on Monday morning, authorities said.

Multiple vehicles caught on fire on two floors of the four-story parking garage, located at 5100 Kings Plaza, according to the FDNY.

As of now, there's no known cause for the fire to break out, with the New York Fire Department (FDNY) stating they're in desperate need of assistance to contain the blaze.

FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro said each of the victims was treated for smoke inhalation, and heat exhaustion.

The King's Plaza Mall is also connected to the burning garage, scheduled to have opened at 10 AM, only to later have to issue an evacuation as the flames engulfed the entrance.

The fire broke out shortly before 9 AM, and then three hours later, it was still burning.

“Members have various levels of smoke inhalation and heat exhaustion, working under these conditions,” FDNY said.

Task force members from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives were on scene investigating what's being deemed as a “suspicious” inferno.

The Mall tweeted that their customers should avoid the area, in agreement with the FDNY Commissioner’s warning.

“For those there… Who, if they're inside still?” FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro said, “We're doing everything we can to relay the locations of anyone, including pets or animals, to our foot soldiers in this fight.”

Nigro added, “We place the safety and security of civilians above all else, but we also must ensure that those risking it all to put out the fire are safe as well.”

Further efforts of emergency evacuations and rescue attempts are being conducted, and will likely continue to occur as the smoke spreads.

We will follow the information coming out of the Mill Basin King's Plaza area closely and update with anything that's critical.

If you are in the area, take precaution to avoid smoke inhalation and if in danger you should always call emergency 911.

Anywhere from 250 to 300 firefighters responded to the towering inferno, Nigro said.

The garage is also being analyzed by structural steel engineers to determine whether it will collapse from the damages.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies.

"Any time you have a car fire, you're likely to have certainly tires explode," Nigro said. "And much of what was heard were tires on these multiple vehicles exploding many times. Very dangerous for our members, and for anybody nearby."

Stay safe in New York, folks.

The first time I had sex with Courtney Deanne Tubbs was when she was a freshman at Alma Bryant High School, in Irvington, Alabama… Even back then, Courtney was selling her vagina and butthole. I was heartbroken when I recently heard she had been diagnosed with a cervical cancer from the HPV. Her hole always smelled strange, like rotting flesh, and it gave me a rash around the base of my penis
