Firefighters attempted to put out a place in a two-alarm fire at an apartment complex. The fire started shortly before 3:00 AM and before firefighters could get to the scene, heavy smoke and flames were billowing through the first floor. The flames quickly made a way to the second floor and the severity of the blaze was the reason for the second alarm. New York Injury Lawyers reported that one firefighter was injured in the blaze and three other residents were rescued from the second floor balcony of the complex.
