On Tuesday night, a five-alarm inferno tore through multiple homes in Queens, injuring nine firefighters.
The fire began inside an attached, multi-family home in Woodside at around 9:45 p.m. and quickly spread to neighbouring homes, according to the FDNY.
The blaze burned through both floors of the two-story building at 37-18 59th Street and expanded to three separate homes.
Firefighters fought the roaring flames for roughly three hours before they finally controlled it around 12:45 a.m.
During the ordeal, nine smoke-eaters were transported to Cornell Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, as reported by the FDNY.
The photos show the aftermath of the fire and the fire crews that responded to the scene.
The extent of the damage is evident in the images, highlighting the importance of prompt response and firefighting efforts in such emergencies.
