A woman was killed Monday after a fire ripped through a home in Brooklyn, police say.

Esther Gee, 67, died after officials pulled her from a 2-alarm fire inside of her 1666 E. 49th St. home  around 1:30 a.m.

The fire marshal's office says the fire did not appear to be suspicious.

Two other people inside the home were able to escape, including numerous pets.

A pet dog was also treated at the scene for smoke inhalation.
