The mother of the children rescued from a Brooklyn fire last week has lost custody of her four kids.

The Administration for Children’s Services began looking into the family after three of the children were rescued from a burning apartment in East New York last Tuesday.

A three-year-old boy was critically hurt in the fire and was revived by EMTs.

The mother had left the kids with their grandfather.

Fire officials say he escaped the burning building on his own.

Sources say two of the children are now with their father, and two others are staying with a family friend.

ACS says it continues to supervise both homes. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
