Tenants rescued from 2-alarm fire on Driggs Ave. in Williamsburg
A least two people had to be rescued from a two-alarm fire in Brooklyn Thursday.
It happened at a five-story building on Driggs Avenue in Williamsburg around 7:30 a.m. 
Fire officials say the fire started on the first floor in the back of a bakery and quickly spread to the second-floor apartments. 
First responders pulled two trapped people from a window on the second floor and another man used the building's fire escape to get to saftey. 
Two tenants and three firefighters suffered minor injuries, but are expected to be OK. 
Officials say the fire destroyed the bakery downstairs, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
