The incident occurred at 11 McKeever Place, located between Empire Blvd. and Montgomery Street, beginning at approximately 3:00am.
Witnesses say they heard screams and saw smoke, which eventually prompted a large response by the FDNY. 20 units and 78 firefighters converged at the scene, and had the fire under control within an hour.
Two people were taken to Kings County Hospital to be treated for injuries. They are listed in stable condition.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
