The flames leapt out of the windows of the three-story brownstone complex in Brooklyn's Crown Heights neighborhood.
The fire broke out after 9:00pm and was mostly quelled around 11:00pm after spreading across three residential buildings.
Fire crews fighting the inferno Tuesday night beared freezing temperatures, with Brooklyn chilling no higher than 20 degrees Fahrenheit, according to the Weather Company. Winds hitting 11 miles per hour made conditions much colder.
