Hey #Brooklyn (esp folks in Bensonhurst, Midwood, Ditmas Park, Kensington, etc.): anyone else smell weird burning/fire odor around midnight?

Smoke could be seen for miles, said NBC 10 Philadelphia. Crews dropped water on the fire from airplanes and used backfires to contain the fire, and the fire did not threaten structures or people, the report noted, adding how the fire started is under investigation.
