Sources tell CBS2 they are looking into whether an accelerant may have been used to start the two-alarm blaze at the three-story walk-up at 6709 11th Ave.in Dyker Heights.

"I heard the sirens, when I came out I realized that flames were shooting out of the back apartment alongside where we live", said witness Heidi Pugni. "We went down the fire escape".

"There were very, very heavy fire conditions in the hallway going through into the top floor and fire out the top floor windows", he said. "It spread rapidly from the first floor up throughout the building". "Then she noticed that the door handle was hot".

The two people who died were grandparents, CBS2's Reena Roy reported.

Firefighters pulled two bodies out of the building, and both were pronounced dead at the scene.

Emergency responders also removed four residents from the home with non-life threatening injuries, the police department said: emergency personnel transported a 31-year-old man, a 30-year-old woman, a 4-year-old girl, and a 3-month-old boy to Maimonides Hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation. Three firefighters also suffered minor injuries fighting the fire.

The American Red Cross helping is assisting those who have been displaced.

No working smoke alarms were found inside of the building, firefighters say.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined and is under investigation by the fire marshal.

The victim's identities have not yet been released.
