At around 8:50 a.m., a stabbing was reported on 143-45 Sanford Ave. on Parsons Boulevard. Two people were then taken to New York Hospital Queens, according to FDNY spokesman Brian Norton.

A fire was reported at the same address at 9:04 a.m. The fire, which started in the garbage, extended to the basement and first floor of a seven-story residential building. The fire has been knocked down.

BBN also said the stabbing and the fire were unrelated, which could not be confirmed.

The NYPD and FDNY investigations were currently under way.
