Emergency crews battled a five-alarm fire at a woodworking shop in Long Island City, Queens Wednesday evening.

The FDNY says the fire broke out early Wednesday evening in a building located at at the corner of Queens Boulevard and 37th Street.

The fire sent smoke billowing over LIC and East River and could be seen from Manhattan.

Officials said 250 firefighters were called to the scene.

"It's a mill workshop, so it had a lot of wood, had a lot of lacquers, thinners, paint in the shop, which led to a quick fire spread," said FDNY Chief of Department James Leonard. "The shop was closed at the time, so we don't anticipate anybody being in there."

Officials say four firefighters suffered minor injuries, and no civilians were injured.

The fire was declared under control just after 11:20 p.m. Wednesday.
