Three people are dead after a fire broke out Friday in Queens, according to officials.
The latest victim was recovered Saturday, the FDNY said.
According to the FDNY, the fire started around 2 p.m. at a private three-story home at 104-18 125 Street in South Ozone Park.
The blaze escalated to a five-alarm fire due to significant winds, which caused the flames to spread to four other similar houses, the FDNY said.
In total, five buildings were damaged, FDNY Chief of Operations John Hodgins said at a news briefing afterwards.
Officials said five firefighters suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Over 200 firefighters from 45 units, including EMS personal, responded to the fire, Hodgins said.
A preliminary report from the Department of Buildings said that the building where the fire started sustained extensive fire damage, including a partial collapsed roof and collapsed rear section.
The department said the fire also spread to multiple adjacent buildings that experienced extensive fire damage, and in some buildings there were practical roof collapses and exterior fire damage.
The Red Cross says it is helping nine families, totaling 29 adults and 13 children, from the three severely damaged buildings.
They’re also urging families affected by this fire who have not yet connected with the Red Cross to call 877-RedCross (877-733-2767).
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
