 Police say one of the injured people was a man who suffered two broken legs after jumping from a third-floor window.

Flames ripped through the four-story building at 112 Saratoga Ave. just before 8 p.m., as residents, who had no warning, ran for their lives.

The four-alarm fire took firefighters nearly three hours to put out.

The Red Cross assisted displaced families with temporary housing and their basic needs.
