NEW YORK (AP) — Firefighters say a blaze in a Brooklyn apartment building has injured 13 people, including a man who jumped to the ground from four stories up.

The Fire Department says the roughly 54-year-old man was the only person seriously wounded in the fire Sunday morning in the Red Hook neighborhood.

Investigators are working to determine the cause of the blaze.


It was reported around 6:30 a.m. on the fourth floor of a six-story apartment building at 75 Bush Street.

It took about a half-hour for firefighters to bring it under control.

The Fire Department says two firefighters were among those injured.

Several people were treated at the scene, but four people have been hospitalized. They include the man who jumped from the fourth floor.
