Two firefighters were hospitalized after falling 15 feet while fighting a four-alarm blaze in Queens last night, authorities said.
It wasn't immediately clear what caused them to plunge while in the warehouse at 56-95 49th Place in Maspeth shortly after 8 p.m.
One suffered a broken arm, the other a minor head injury, officials said. Both were taken to Elmhurst Hospital.
"They were pulled out of the warehouse conscious and on their own power," an FDNY spokesman said.
A third firefighter was treated at the scene for minor injuries.
The warehouse was unoccupied and in an industrial area.
It took about five hours to bring the blaze under control.
