Five firefighters were injured in a blaze at a Brooklyn brownstone Monday and two are in serious condition.
The FDNY says the two firefighters seriously hurt were taken to an area hospital for treatment. One suffered burns over 40 percent of his body, including his face, hands and head, the FDNY said.
The other three firefighters suffered minor injuries, authorities said.
They were responding to a two-alarm fire Monday in a three-story brownstone on Prospect Place near Albany Avenue in Crown Heights.
More than 100 firefighters and emergency crews were at the scene.
The FDNY says the fire is under investigation and it’s not believed to be suspicious.
The fire was confined to one building. No one was home when the fire swept through the top floor.
