An early morning fire in Jackson Heights Wednesday left four families displaced and injured four.

The two-alarm blaze broke out around 2:30 a.m. on the second floor of a two-story building on Roosevelt Avenue near 80th Street, said the FDNY, and was under control about an hour later.

Fire officials said four people received minor injuries in the blaze, including two firefighters.

According to the Red Cross, the fire displaced four families, two of which required emergency housing that the Red Cross provided. The Red Cross said it also provided emergency funds for basic necessities, such as food and clothing.
