City fire crews on Monday worked to quickly evacuate a mom and her infant after a fire engulfed a building in Brooklyn.

Flames broke out around 3 p.m. on the second floor of a four-story apartment building located at 519 Myrtle Avenue in Clinton Hill.

Firefighters took a little less than a hour to get the blaze under control.

Officials say crews were able to evacuate people who lived in the building where the fire started.

In a building next door, firefighters helped a mother and her baby to safety.

Their apartment was not affected by the flames, and they were evacuated by their fire escape.

Officials say three people were hurt in the incident.
