All hands are on deck at a house fire in East New York, Brooklyn, where firefighters have just knocked down heavy flames.

The two-and-a-half-story wood frame house on East 46th Street, just south of Church Avenue, appears to still be smoldering, with heavy smoke seen from Chopper 4.

The fire appears to have originated in a second-floor bedroom.

Firefighters are approaching the home from all sides in order to put out the fire, which appeared to break out sometime just after 5:30 p.m.

The site is just slightly west of another breaking news scene, where an off-duty police officer was shot while sitting at a McDonald's drive-thru.
