Rescue 2 responded to 373 Blake Ave. for kids trapped and people on the roof. The fire was on the 2nd floor of the 3 story o.m.d. A cancer-stricken boy and his toddler sister are fighting for their lives after an early-morning fire ripped through their Brooklyn apartment yesterday, sources said.
Rolando Rich, 4, who is battling leukemia, and sister Dasani Rich, 3, were overpowered in the 2:45 a.m. blaze that broke out while their mom was running to the store, sources said.
The kids are in critical condition suffering from burns and smoke inhalation at Brookdale Hospital, where Rolando is on life support, according to sources. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
Oldest brother Darnell Smith, 15, was able to get his 11-year-old brother, Kamari Daniels, out of danger but couldn’t reach his youngest siblings, who were rescued from the second-floor apartment by firefighters.
Veteran firefighters Captain Christopher Eysser L-120 and Anthony Arroyo L103 brought the younger children to safety, with Eysser handing off Rolando to Arroyo through the window.
“There was zero visibility,” said said Captain Eysser, 41, of Ladder Co. 120.
“You couldn’t see your hands in front of your face. The children were unconscious, lying on the floor. When you pick up a child [who is] unconscious, it hits home.”
