Woman Burned in Queens Fire: FDNY

Associated Press

A woman suffered burns to over 40 percent of her upper body when a fire tore through her Queens home Thursday evening.

The fire started at about 6 p.m. inside the three-story private home at 35-55 29th St. in Astoria, the FDNY said. It burned for about 30 minutes before firefighters knocked it out.

The burned resident was taken to the hospital, along with a firefighter who had minor injuries including smoke inhalation.

Two cats and a rabbit were safely rescued from the home.
