Two Seventh Avenue residents were injured in a fire that broke out in their third-floor apartment on Wednesday.
The blaze near Garfield Place in Park Slope started at 12:25 pm, drawing 60 firefighters, who put out the fire within 35 minutes. The FDNY is still investigating the cause.
A Fire Department spokesman said that the two residents were not badly hurt — a surprise to at least one neighbor who saw the bright orange flames lashing their violent tongues out the window.
“It was very scary — there was lots of fire and smoke coming out of the windows,” said Ella Auerbakh, who runs a day spa across the street from the building. “Thankfully, it wasn’t worse.”Reach reporter Daniel Bush at email@example.com or by calling (718) 260-8310. Follow him at twitter.co
