EAST FLATBUSH - A person suffering life-threatening injuries was among four people hurt in a two-alarm fire Tuesday afternoon in East Flatbush.

EMS says the fire started at around 3:30 p.m. on the second floor of an apartment building at 3420 Clarendon Road and quickly spread to the third and fourth floors. Firefighters say one woman jumped from a third-floor fire escape to save her life.

Firefighters brought the fire under control by 4:15 p.m. after some difficulty finding a fire hydrant on the street that wasn't frozen.

Another victim suffered serious injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening. The two others suffered minor injuries. All four were taken to Queens General Hospital. The fire caused some serious damage to the building, but firefighters say most of the apartments are OK and some tenants were even able to return back home.
