NEW YORK — The Fire Department of New York says 32 people have been taken to hospitals — some with serious injuries — following a fire in a Brooklyn apartment building.

The FDNY says two of the patients were transported with potentially life-threatening injuries.

The Daily News says residents in pajamas watched from the street as firefighters tackled the blaze. It was reported around 11:40 p.m. Sunday in Cypress Hills and brought under control about an hour later.

Two firefighters were among those requiring medical attention.
