The city fire department is trying to figure out what sparked the flames that tore through a bodega in the Bronx early Monday.

The fire broke out at 2840 Briggs Avenue in Bedford Park shortly after 4 a.m.

Firefighters got it under control about two hours later.

Witnesses say they could see flames shooting out of the roof.

"I saw them leaving the roof after they cut it open so whatever was blazin' could burn out, you know, I guess they stopped it from getting any worse than it was," said one witness.

No injuries were reported. ClientIP:,, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
