A man died following a fire in an apartment building in East Flatbush.
Officials were first called to the fire burning on the third floor of 4-11 East 49th Street just after 4 a.m.
That's where they found 43-year-old Edzer Desire, who was later pronounced dead at Kings County Hospital.
The victim's brother, Richard Desire, spoke to NY1 about the loss.
"My brother was a good man, a peaceful man, a quiet man. Helpful guy—he loves everybody, he loves friends. He's from Haiti," Desire said.
Three other people suffered minor injuries in the fire.
