The flames started inside the basement, which neighbors say is vacant.

Seven people were hurt after flames broke out at a Soundview building this morning.

Officials say it started in the basement of 1098 Croes Ave. at around 6:30 a.m. It spread to two alarms due to heavy smoke and took about an hour to get under control.

The fire chief says most of the tenants had already evacuated the building on their own by the time emergency crews arrived.
