An NYPD officer and five city firefighters suffered non-life threatening injuries Tuesday night due to a three-alarm blaze at a Brooklyn building.

The fire started around 9:18 p.m. Tuesday night on the top two floors a three-story building that is on Bergen St. near Franklin Ave.in Crown Heights, according to the city fire department.

Crews say it's not clear what sparked the fire, but it jumped quickly from one building to the next in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn. The residents inside the building were able to get out safely on their own.

Six firefighters and one police officer are being treated for injuries and are expected to be ok. Another three firefighters were hurt fighting flames. "The stairs gave way, and we had three firefighters hurt on the stairway - not serious injuries", FDNY Assistant Chief Roger Sakowich said. The flames were under control just before midnight. Fire officials were able to determine the fire started in the second floor of the first building, which went up in flames. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Firefighters had to battle the blaze in extremely frigid conditions: the temperature is barely cracking 20 degrees, but the wind chills are making it feel like 11 degrees.
