Three Alarm Fire Injures 17 FFs In Queens

Seventeen firefighters and two tenants were hospitalized after a three-alarm blaze broke out at a Queens building Monday, officials said.

The fast-moving fire erupted about 2:55 a.m. in the three-story building on 45th Ave. in Flushing and was brought under control just before 6 a.m., Fire Department officials said. The building has a coin laundry and other businesses on the ground floor and apartments above.
The two civilians, who suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries, were being treated at Flushing Hospital. The firefighters, all with minor injuries, were taken to the same hospital, officials said.
