Three Firefighters, One Officer Injured During Crown Heights Blaze

Three Firefighters, One Officer Injured During Crown Heights Blaze

It's not clear what sparked the blaze on Bergen Street Tuesday night, but the fire jumped quickly from one building to an adjacent one, and then to a third. Flames and black smoke were seen bellowing out of the windows of the burning building from streets away, NBC New York reported. Firefighters say the flames were largely under control by 11 p.m. By 11 p.m. EST, the firefighters were double-checking the charred, smoldering buildings, especially focusing on the roof.

All the residents of the affected buildings were accounted for and no casualties were reported, according to law enforcement officers.

All residents of both buildings got out safely.

One woman who escaped the first building made it out with two family members in her pajamas and socks.

Officials say the injuries of three other firefighters and an officer were not reported to be serious. As firefighters were walking up the stairs in the house, the stairway gave way, injuring several firefighters, a fire official said.

The cause of the Crown Heights fire is unknown. Three people living in the building where the fire started are now homeless and being assisted by the Red Cross.

"I'm sure weather and heating devices are playing a part in this", FDNY Chief Roger Sakowich told Diamond.
