As the fire raged on, more than 170 FDNY firefighters and medics were called in to douse the flames and lend medical assistance.

The fire had reached four alarms before it was brought under control about 7:15 a.m., officials said.

Nine civilians and three firefighters were taken to Maimonides Hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

An investigation into what sparked the fire is underway.
