The blaze ignited in the long-shuttered Victory Theater at 233 W. 125th St. just before 7:30 a.m.

Fire officials said the call initially came in as a blaze on the first floor. The fire spread to the third floor before being brought under control just after 8 a.m.

No one was injured in the fire, officials said.


The old structure is being demolished to make way for a 26-story, $164 million building that will house stores and apartments.
