The fire at 1700 Broad St. in Utica was reported around 5:50 a.m. Friday. NEWSChannel 2 crews that arrived on scene at 6:45 a.m. said you could smell gas from a mile away. 

Flames were shooting up into the sky as fire crews worked to put out the fire. Some of those flames were getting close to a Bernie Bus Garage which prompted drivers to begin moving the buses as the flames crept closer to the building.
