BAYCHESTER — Three firefighters were injured while battling a blaze in a Tiemann Avenue home Wednesday morning, FDNY officials said.

The fire sparked about 10 a.m. inside of 3021 Tiemann Ave., near Hammersly Avenue, shooting flames up the walls of the two-story house and completely engulfing the roof, officials said.

Three of firefighters suffered minor injuries and were taken to Jacobi Medical Center, officials said.

Another person refused medical attention at the scene, a fire spokesman said.
