BROOKLYN — Several people were injured when a firetruck crashed into a building in Brooklyn Sunday night, authorities said.

It happened around 11:30 p.m. in the vicinity of Avenue U and East 4 Street in Gravesend, FDNY officials said.

An FDNY apparatus was responding to reports of a structural fire in Bay Parkway when it struck a vehicle, according to authorities.

The apparatus then struck a closed commercial building, police said.

One civilian and five firefighters were taken to the hospital for their non-serious injuries, authorities said.
