Two people were killed and three others were injured in a Brooklyn house fire early Wednesday morning, the FDNY says. 

The two-alarm blaze broke out at the home in Midwood around 3:30 a.m., officials say.

A 91-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the FDNY. A 63-year-old man was pronounced dead at the hospital a short time later.

The other three residents who were hurt suffered minor injuries, the FDNY says. 

The fire started in the home's second floor and was brought under control in about an hour.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
