A fire broke out at an Elmhurst home, killing two and critically injuring one man.

Three men are now dead after a fire tore through an Elmhurst home on Monday night.

The fire began at about 10:28 p.m. inside of a home at 42-24 Ithaca St., police said. Upon arrival, the FDNY found three men in the home who were unresponsive and unconscious. The men were transported to Elmhurst Hospital and Forest Hills Hospital.

Craig Lott, 55, and Martin Devereux, 71, died shortly after they were taken to the hospital. The third man, whose identification is pending family notification, was pronounced dead on Tuesday.

The NYC fire marshal has not yet determined the cause of the fire, according to spokesman for the FDNY.

The NYC Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death.
