EAST NEW YORK, BROOKLYN (PIX11)- A fire Saturday evening destroyed the inside of a funeral home in East New York.

The fire broke out in the basement of Donnelly and Purcell Funeral home on Fulton Street.

Windows were blown out and floors were ravaged as the flames climbed the three story building.

Residents in the neighborhood say the funeral home was more like a town icon.

This is the second fire in the area this month.

No one was injured in the blaze, the cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
