BEDFORD-STUYVESANT, Brooklyn — A fire ripped through a three-story home in Brooklyn Sunday, injuring two people.

The fire broke out around noon on the second floor of the building at 15 Pleasant Place in Bedford Stuyvesant, the FDNY said. The fire quickly spread to the third floor.

An infant and a woman were injured as a result. Both were removed from the building on stretchers to be taken to the hospital. The infant is said to be suffering from smoke inhalation.
