QUEENS — A fire in a Queens home left two people hurt early Monday, one seriously, fire officials said.
The blaze began about 7:30 a.m. on the second floor of 153-11 41st Avenue in Flushing. It was under control about 15 minutes later, fire officials said.
The two injured people were transported to Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx, which has a specialist burns unit. One person was stable, but the other person was in serious condition, officials said.
A fire marshal at the scene said one of the victims was rescued from a third floor window. The other was the building's landlady, the marshal said.
"I was sleeping. I hear somebody scream there was a fire," said Derrick Kim, who lives in the building and said one of the victims moved in just two days ago.
"I went out. There were 10 firefighters in the room."
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
