Fire kills man in Jamaica

From the Daily News:

A 64-year-old man was killed and his 89-year-old mother was injured when a fire tore through their Queens home before dawn Monday, cops said.

The blaze apparently broke out in the basement of 168-37 118th Road in Jamaica about 3:30 a.m., an FDNY spokesman said.

About 60 firefighters responded and pulled the mother and son out of the smoke-filled home, officials said.

The man was rushed to Queens General Hospital but couldn't be saved. His mom was taken to Franklin General Hospital in stable condition. A third person was injured but refused treatment, officials said.
