Three hurt in Ozone Park blaze

By Christina Santucci

Three people were seriously injured, possibly from jumping out the window, after a fire spread from the ground flood of an Ozone Park building to the second floor Saturday morning, a spokesman for the Fire Department and neighbors said.

At about 11:15 a.m., firefighters responded to a call about a blaze at 89-17 Sutter Ave, the FDNY said.

The fire was listed as under control at 11:51 a.m., the spokesman said.

Three people were taken to Jamaica Hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries, according to the Fire Department, and officials at the scene Saturday said people inside the second floor had jumped from the window to the ground below to escape the blaze.

The address listed for the fire is that of a hair salon, however, the blaze was concentrated in the back of the building, which appeared to be two floors of apartments. The back of the building was marked as both 89-17 Sutter Ave. and 107-62 90th St. The salon was open for business Saturday afternoon.
