Firefighters rushed to a New Rochelle factory after flames broke out just after 6 p.m. Tuesday.
It began inside the Ortho-Rite factory, which produces foot-care products.
Genesis Reyes, a woman who works there and also lives next door, captured some of the fire on cellphone video. She says flames were burning through the roof before firefighters got the situation under control.
"I walked outside my house and there was smoke everywhere," she says. "I was scared and didn't know what to do."
Authorities say one firefighter sustained minor injuries, and damage to the building is extensive.
