April 29 (UPI) — At least three people were killed and eight more were injured in a fire at a home in New York late Saturday night.
An 87-year-old man, an 82-year-old woman and a 32-year-old man were pronounced dead at local hospitals following the three-alarm blaze in Queens Village.
The fire burned through the first and second floors of a two-story home and it took firefighters about 2 1/2 hours to put it out.
Two of the injured were young children, the New York City Police Department said.
The Fire Department of New York is investigating the cause, which is not considered suspicious.
