A three-alarm fire in Brooklyn left two people seriously injured on Friday.
Eighteen firefighters also suffered minor injures as 150 FDNY members fought the Cypress Hills blaze that spread between two houses just before 5 p.m., the department said.
The fire started on the upper floors of 60 Ashford St., a three-story wood-frame house, according to the FDNY. It quickly spread to the house next door and threatened other homes, officials said.
The fire was under control in less than two hours, and the victims were expected to survive their injuries, according to the department.
Its cause was under investigation.
