A raging inferno gutted the top floors of a Crown Heights apartment building on June 6, injuring two children, authorities said.
The blaze erupted on the fifth floor of the Union Street property between Portal Street and Ralph Avenue shortly before 11 a.m., according to a Fire Department spokesman.
Emergency medical personnel rushed two children — who were spotted grinning as paramedics wheeled them out on a stretcher — to nearby Woodhull Hospital in stable condition, authorities said.
The smoke eaters managed to smother the blaze by 11:30 a.m., according to the department.
