A fire ripped through the second floor of an E. 35th Street home on Oct. 11 — a blaze that left the tree-lined block covered in thick black smoke.

Firefighters raced in and out of the two-family home between Kings Highway and Avenue L in Flatlands shortly after the 7:45 pm blaze broke out, searching for possible anyone stuck inside. Luckily, they found none, an FDNY spokesman said.

“We knocked out the main body of the fire by 8:05 pm, but we were still holding the units there until all of our searches were complete,” the spokesman said.

The fire was under control by 8:30 pm. No injuries were reported.

The cause of the blaze was still being investigated by late Thursday.
