New York’s Bravest spent about half an hour Monday putting out a fire that broke out in a residential building in Jamaica.

More than 100 firefighters responded to a call of a two-alarm fire at 143-23 95th Ave. a little after 3:30 p.m. Monday, according to the FDNY.

It took about 30 minutes to put out the fire, which climbed up to the top of the three-floor residential building, the department said.

Two civilians were treated at the scene for minor injuries, the FDNY said, and no firefighters were injured.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
