A massive fire broke out in a second floor of an apartment building on Carroll Street, just as families were sitting down for their Yom Tov meals. It took firefighters nearly a half hour to douse the intense blaze.

The fire broke out in the second floor of 1365 Carroll Street, which is on the corner of Kingston Avenue, in the apartment of an older man on Sunday, the first day of Shavuot at around 2:35pm.

According to eyewitnesses bright orange flames and plumes of black smoke came pouring out of the kitchen window in the inner courtyard of the building. One man sprung into action and climbed up the fire escape in attempt to help trapped residents in the building.
