Fire in Flatbush guts Victorian

Brooklyn Daily

A huge fire completely decimated an E. 35th Street home in the early morning last Wednesday, but no one was seriously injured, fire officials said.

Over 130 of New York’s Bravest were called in to combat the inferno at the three-story Victorian house between Flatbush Avenue and Avenue I at 3:53 am.

The fire fighters battled the blaze for nearly two hours using equipment brought from 33 trucks, before calling the all clear at 5:40 am.

A resident and two firefighters suffered minor injuries in the conflagration, but they all refused medical treatment.

Fire marshals will continue investigating the cause of the blaze, which has not yet been determined, a fire department spokesman said.

Reach reporter Colin Mixson at or by calling (718) 260-4514.
