EAST NEW YORK, Brooklyn — Over 100 firefighters worked to put out a large house fire in Brooklyn in the early hours of Tuesday, the FDNY confirmed.

According to fire officials, a call came in around 3:20 a.m. for flames in what appears to be a private home at 965 Belmont Ave., near Chestnut Street, in East New York.

The fire appears to have started on the first floor of the two-story house, but video from New York Rescue Response Team on Twitter showed flames shooting out from the building's roof as firefighters operated inside.

The FDNY could not confirm any injuries, but video from the scene showed at least one person receiving medical treatment.
