Two firefighters and two other people were hurt in a three-alarm blaze at a high-rise apartment building across from the Brooklyn Museum overnight Friday, according to the FDNY.

The fire broke out in an apartment on the 12th floor of a 16-story building at 135 Eastern Parkway in Prospect Heights at about 11:30 p.m., the FDNY says.

More than 130 firefighters responded to the blaze, which was brought under control by 2 a.m.

The firefighters and others had minor injuries and were being evaluated at the scene, firefighters say. 

It's not clear what sparked the blaze.
