22 residents displaced by fire in Brooklyn

BROOKLYN — Nearly two dozen residents are displaced after fire ripped through a Brooklyn apartment building early Thursday.

A spokeswoman for the Red Cross said the agency is working with six families and has provided them with food, clothing and housing.

Shortly after 5 a.m., those families’ homes at 1163 Fulton St. were burned when flames broke out on the first floor of the mixed-occupancy building.

A hardware store occupies the lower level of the four-story building.

No injuries have been reported.

AIR11 is over the scene where firefighters continue to put out the fire.
