Firefighters battle this fire in Brooklyn this morning.


An inferno in a Park Slope building gutted a supermarket and has left scores of people homeless.

The massive three-alarm blaze broke out inside a building on Fifth Avenue near 17th Street about 12:15 a.m. today and quickly spread throughout the three story structure, tearing through the Associated Supermarket, in the ground floor and gutting 10 residential apartments above, said officials.
