Woman, 3 children killed in Brooklyn house fire

Four people were killed and 10 injured in a Brooklyn house fire overnight Monday, officials said.

The deadly blaze erupted in the second-floor of a home at 1945 E. 14th St. near Ave S. in Sheepshead Bay around 2:30 a.m., police said.

A 40-year-old woman, an 11-year-old boy, a 7-year-old boy and a 3-year-old girl died in the fire, according to cops.

Two firefighters were among the 10 people hurt as the flames spread from the second floor to the attic. At least three were hospitalized with serious injuries, while three others suffered minor injuries. The firefighters are expected to recover.

The flames left much of the home scorched and firefighters were forced to sort through debris on the first floor and in the attic.

A neighbor, who declined to be identified, said he saw firefighters running into the home as the inferno grew.

“There were big flames shooting out the front of the house,” he said. “Firefighters went straight into the fire.”

He did not see any of the residents.

In addition to the Brooklyn incident, a blaze broke out in the Bronx late Sunday.

That fire sparked in a home along Simpson St. near Freeman St. in Foxhurst. Three people were sent to a local hospital in serious condition.
