Firefighters extinguished a blaze that chased residents from a two-family home in Dyker Heights on Monday night. No injuries were reported.

Witnesses said the fire seemed to have started in a portion of the building that was under construction and had no one living in it. Residents in the portion of the home attached fled when they smelled smoke, the witness said.

Firefighters were on the scene, on Bay Ridge Parkway between 10th and 11th streets sometime between 8 and 8:30 pm, and while it took them about a half hour to 45 minutes to douse the flames, members of the department worked there through the night.

“There were fireman going in and out non-stop,” the witness said. “It was amazing.”
