A two-alarm fire tore through the basement of a six-story residential building at 81-10 135 St. in Briarwood on Sunday, leaving three people with minor injuries, according to the FDNY.

Firefighters responded to the blaze that originated in the building’s basement at 4:30 p.m., and after calling for backup at 4:33 p.m., 25 units consisting of around 106 first responders battled the fire until it was extinguished around 5:25 p.m., the FDNY said.

Two civilians were taken to New York Hospital Queens with minor injuries while a third person refused medical attention at the scene, according to the FDNY.
