Fire rips through Brooklyn just days after blaze kills 12 

A fire ripped through three residential buildings in Brooklyn on Tuesday night, injuring at least six firefighters and one police officer.

The fire quickly jumped from one building to an adjacent one, and then to a third, in the Crown Heights neighborhood after sparking around 9.30pm.

It remains unclear what sparked the blaze, but officials have not ruled out weather and heating devices.

The incident comes after 23 people were injured in a Bronx blaze on Tuesday morning, and days after 12 were killed in a Bronx apartment fire last week.
