Four firefighters and two Crown Heights residents were injured in an apartment fire near the Brooklyn Museum on Thursday night, fire officials said.

The inferno flared up around 11:30 pm on the 12th floor of a 16-floor apartment building on Eastern Parkway near Washington Avenue. New York’s Bravest extinguished the blaze by 1:48 am.

Three smoke eaters were rushed to Weill Cornell Medical Center in Manhattan and one to New York Methodist Hospital in Park Slope, all with minor injuries.

Fire officials could not provide the ages or genders of the civilians, who also suffered minor injuries.
