A four-alarm fire broke out in the Norwood section of the Bronx Tuesday afternoon, hurting five firefighters and one civilian.

Chopper 4 was over the scene on Hull Avenue about 2:30 p.m where a large, smokey fire appeared to engulf a home and was spreading to nearby properties.

The fire broke out about 2:10 p.m on the third floor of a 3-story home at 3210 Hull Avenue, the FDNY said.

Hours later the fire was still out of control, and had spread to two neighboring buildings, the FDNY said. Firefighters were still on the scene at 9 p.m.

The injuries suffered by firefighters were described as minor; the civilian had serious injuries, and was taken to Jacobi. 

Fire crews are investigating the integrity of the structure. A cause of the fire is under investigation.
