WOODSIDE, Queens — Four residents of a Queens home are fighting for their lives and four firefighters were injured after flames ripped through the house early Friday, according to the FDNY.

Fire officials said the call came in around midnight for a fire inside 64-11 35th Ave. in the Woodside neighborhood.

According to the FDNY, 12 units initially responded to battle the blaze.

Four residents were rescued from the house and transported to area hospitals where they were listed in critical condition, authorities said. Among those victims were a 10-year-old girl and a 25-year-old woman, who police later said were "stable."
