Brooklyn, NY (February 2, 2019) – Many people are injured and even killed in fires that break out in New York every year. Unfortunately, fires can very easily get out of control in tightly-knit neighborhoods, which means that loved ones are more likely to sustain catastrophic injuries and even lose their lives.
Police reported that an apartment building fire broke out in Brownsville, Brooklyn early this morning and caused serious injuries to one person. The incident took place around 1:23 a.m. at 82 Rockaway Parkway.
The fire broke out in the early morning hours for reasons that are not yet known. One man was injured in the accident but treated by EMS. He appeared to be in stable condition when he was taken to the hospital, according to witnesses at the scene.
The investigation continues at this time.
