According to the FDNY, a 911 call came in at about 2 a.m. for a fire on the second floor of a 5-story building.

The fire was under control about 30 minutes later with the help of 60 firefighters and emergency personnel.

Officials say all nine people were transported to a hospital, mostly for smoke inhalation and burns-five civilians and one NYPD officer suffered minor injuries, while one civilian and one NYPD officer suffered serious non-life-threatening injuries. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
