HELL’S KITCHEN — Four people were hurt, including one person who suffered life-threatening injuries, when a fire engulfed a West 44th Street brownstone early Monday, the FDNY said.

The blaze broke out inside the second floor of 448 W. 44th St., near 10th Avenue, around 1:30 a.m. and was not brought under control until about 90 minutes later, fire officials said.

One person was treated at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center for life-threatening injuries, the FDNY said.

Another civilian and a firefighter were treated at the same hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening, officials said.

Two other firefighters refused medical attention, the FDNY said.

More than 60 firefighters worked to bring the blaze under control until about 3 a.m., fire officials said.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
