NEW YORK — The fire-ravaged Main Building on Pratt Institute’s Brooklyn campus will easily require months of repairs before it will be safe enough for students to return to class there.
That was the word from Brooklyn fire officials Friday night after an early-morning four-alarm blaze swept through the historic structure earlier in the day. Thirty-nine fire engines were called to the scene at 2:13 a.m., with 168 firefighters battling the blaze for two hours. A team of fire marshals is currently investigating the cause, according to Jim Long, director of public information for the Brooklyn Fire Department.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
