Four people, including three firefighters, suffered minor injuries after a fire broke out Saturday night at a Claremont home.
The FDNY says the fire started on the first floor of the two-story home on Morris Avenue just after 7 p.m.
The operation to extinguish the fire was extensive that the road was shut down between Mount Eden Parkway and Teller Avenue.
The person who lives on the first floor of the apartment building was home but made it out in time.
While the bulk of the fire was on the lower level, the second floor sustained damage from the smoke.
Despite the weather, 60 firefighters and EMS were able to get the fire under control 30 minutes after it started.
The FDNY says the injured were all taken to area hospitals to be treated.
Investigators were still trying to determine the cause of the fire as of Saturday night.
