NY Daily News - April 16, 2018


Two women were killed in a fast-moving blaze that erupted inside a Queens home amid a deluge of rain Monday morning, officials said.

More than a hundred firefighters tackled the inferno as flames tore through the two-story home on the corner of Wheatley St. and Brunswick Ave. in Far Rockaway around 4 a.m., according to a FDNY spokesman.

The two victims — both unidentified — were pulled from the burning home and rushed to St. John's Episcopal Hospital, where police said they died.
