NEW HYDE PARK, N.Y. — A grandma and her 4-year-old granddaughter have died after a fire tore through a home on Long Island early Sunday.
The blaze broke out at about 3 a.m. in the two-story home along North 12th Street in New Hyde Park, officials said.
"About 3 a.m., lots of lights and you know first thing I saw was the police were taking people out of the house and looked a little to the left from my bedroom window and there was a lot of flames and a lot of smoke," neighbor Megan Kuskowski told PIX11 News.
There were five people occupants inside the residence at the time of the blaze, said police. Two escaped the residence uninjured, cops said.
Three people were taken to the hospital, including the the grandma, her granddaughter and her 10-year-old grandson.
According to multiple reports, fire officials on scene said the young boy jumped from the second floor window and landed on a parked car, before running to get help from a neighbor. He remains in the hospital in stable condition.
Officials say it took over 200 firefighters to get the fire under control.
The Red Cross say they will be assisting the family.
Detectives deemed the fire non-criminal, but investigation remains ongoing.
