15 displaced in Crown Heights fire

A fire broke out in a Crown Heights complex Tuesday, forcing at least 15 tenants to evacuate.



Officials say the flames appeared to have sparked on the first floor of a four-story building on Ralph and Buffalo avenues.



The fire then climbed upward and engulfed the other floors.



Everyone inside escaped the flames, but some people were checked for minor injuries, officials say.
