A blaze erupted at a Brooklyn NYCHA complex on Sunday evening, leading to seven individuals, including two young children and two firefighters, being hospitalized, as per an FDNY spokesperson. 

Responding to a 911 call at 7:20 p.m., FDNY personnel swiftly escalated the incident to a four-alarm fire within 16 minutes, disclosed Chief of Fire Operations John Esposito.
