Two people were injured after a fire broke out inside a high-rise in Crown Heights Tuesday, officials say.

The incident happened on the 14th floor of the complex at 11 McKeever Place around 3 a.m.

Witnesses say they heard screams and saw smoke, which eventually prompted a large response by the FDNY.

At least two people were transported to Kings County Hospital with minor injuries and are expected to be OK.

The cause of the fire is unknown.
