11 Hurt, Including 2 Firefighters, in Brooklyn Building Blaze

Almost a dozen people were treated for injuries resulting from a 3-alarm building fire in a Brooklyn neighborhood Sunday, fire officials said.

The first crews responded around 4 p.m. to the mixed-use building on 6th Avenue in Sunset Park. It took FDNY members about an hour to get the blaze under control.

Eleven people sustained injuries, two of which were firefighters, the FDNY said. Conditions and what injuries each of the victims suffered was not immediately known.

Ten of the patients were transported to local hospitals, and one of the firefighters was treated at the scene of the fire, the FDNY said.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
