Queens Home Fire Kills Man and Boy, 6, Burns Another Boy

February 15, 2021

NEW YORK — A fire tore through a Queens home early Monday, killing a man and a 6-year-old boy and leaving another 6-year-old hospitalized with burns, authorities said. 

Police and firefighters were called shortly after 1 a.m. to a two-story home on 157th Street, in the Flushing neighborhood. 

A neighbor's video, shown on WABC-TV, captured flames shooting through the home's roof. 

Authorities found the boy and the 65-year-old man dead. 

Police believe the two were father and son. Their names haven't been released.

The other 6-year-old is in stable condition, police said. 

The Fire Department said another person at the home declined medical attention, and two firefighters were taken to hospitals with minor injuries. 

Fire marshals are investigating what caused the blaze.
