An 8-year-old boy was killed Sunday during an early morning fire in Brooklyn.
EMS officials say the blaze started at around 3 a.m. at 2773 Bedford Ave. The boy was found unconscious inside the two-story home after the flames were put out and was later pronounced dead on the way to the hospital.
The FDNY says the fire was caused by a space heater placed too close to combustibles. Emergency responders say there were no working smoke detectors in the home.
