The FDNY battled a two-alarm fire at an Elmhurst home early Monday morning.

Nine people — including three firefighters — were injured early Monday morning when a fire ripped through all floors of a three-story home in Elmhurst, according to the FDNY.

Fire officials received a call for the blaze at 42-67 Ketcham St. at about 4:24 a.m.; within eight minutes, it spread throughout the home and was upgraded to a two-alarm fire.

According to a tweet from the FDNY, firefighters had to use a saw to vent out the attic of the home.

One victim was taken in serious condition to Cornell Medical Center, five other people and the three firefighters were taken to Elmhurst Hospital with minor injuries.

The FDNY had the fire under control by 6:50 a.m.; the cause of the fire is under investigation.
