    A fire on the top floor of an apartment building has hurt seven people, including firefighters in Queens, the FDNY says. 

    The blaze broke out on the top of a seven-story building on Beach Street in the Rockaways, the FDNY said. 

    Four civilians and three firefighters suffered minor injuries. 

    Video from the scene showed thick smoke billowing from the top of the building and several firetrucks with their ladders extended to fight the blaze. 

    Several windows were broken and the bricks around them were blackened. 

    Residents won't be allowed back in their apartments tonight, the FDNY said. It's not clear what may have sparked the fire.
