Video from NYRRT84 of a third-alarm in Brooklyn this morning at 1063 East 35th Street.


More than 100 firefighters battled a three-alarm blaze that injured three people in Brooklyn Wednesday morning, authorities said.

The blaze broke out around 4 a.m. on the first floor of a three-story building at Flatbush Avenue and East 35th Street in Flatbush. Flames ripped through the second and third floors, destroying the multi-family house.

A second home was also slightly damaged in the fire, authorities said.


Fire officials at the scene say it started on the first floor, and spread across all three stories of the building.

“We were very lucky that there was only one person, with very minor injuries. Our concern was the volume of fire, and whether the fire would communicate to adjoining buildings,” said FDNY Assistant Chief Joseph Pfeifer.

More than 100 firefighters responded to the scene of the fire. Two were treated at the scene for minor injuries.

    Fire above, fire below…and they are inside working. Gotta love FDNY :)

    These older 2.5 story wood frames are tough. Fire is knocked down, but spreads through vertical and horizonal voids. Lines have to keep moving to get ahead, while re-checking areas already knocked down. Nice use of exterior line to darken down and limit exterior spread. No fire was pushed and no one was burned by this action. Nice coordination and control.

    Chief Piefer has been the IC for more than one what you would think of as once in a lifetime incidets.
    1st due BC at the WTC initial IC losses included his brother.
    He commanded some fires during the response to Katrina.
    Made the stand in Breezy last year durning Sandy in the fire that claimed more than 100 beach homes in the neighboorhood where he spent his summers as a child.
    Impressive guy and a great teacher.

    Met fan I meant no disrespect. I am north of the city by albany so I dont get the same news you do down there. This guy is the chief we all wanna be. He has seen some great jobs in his career.

    How wonderful…

    They threw 100+ firefighters at a 3-story job and held it to 3-alarms.


    I’m more impressed that NYFD did not kill, maim, injure, burn any members.

    Of course, their actions probably did shorten the longevity of a few retirements.
