Officials say four people suffered minor injuries, including three firefighters during an early morning fire in Sunset Park.
News 12 is told about 60 firefighters were on scene at 368 50th St., near the corner of Fourth Avenue.
Calls came is around 2:30 a.m. saying there was a fire on the top floor of the three-story brownstone.
Fire officials say when they got on scene there were flames coming from the top floor and roof of the building.
It took crews about an hour and a half to get the flames under control.
Tenants are working with the American Red Cross to get temporary housing.
One of the residents tells News 12 it was a combination of the alarms and everyone’s dogs barking that woke many of the tenants up.

"We've been having a lot of fires lately going on. People have to be safe at home and make sure there's no extensions going from one room to the other and more cautious at night. Usually it's happening when people are sleeping," says JJ Infante.
The fire marshal’s office is investigating the cause of the fire.
