A raging fire inside a Staten Island home left one person dead and 14 others injured — including the dead man’s brother — as heavy snow blanketed the city Thursday, officials said.

The blaze began inside the two-story house on Post Ave. near Heberton Ave. in Elm Park at about 7 a.m., officials said.

“I heard children screaming outside,” said Wendy Neuhalfen, 53, who lives across the street. “I thought they were out playing in the snow. But then I kept hearing them, so I looked out and saw the first floor was engulfed in flames.”
