This place was a slippery mess. Reports of a fire at CitiStorage along Brooklyn’s waterfront came in early yesterday morning and firefighters from across the city battled it all day in an attempt to keep it under control. As of tonight, the fire has been upgraded to a 7-alarm fire, one of the biggest fires in the city since Greenpoint went up in flames in 2006.
