A fire that ripped through a Brooklyn home killed a woman and left a man hospitalized.

Police say the blaze started Sunday just after 3 a.m. in the Flatbush neighborhood.

More than 100 firefighters responded to the fire that rose to the top of the three-story home that housed two families.

Police say 49-year-old Maria Henry was pronounced dead after being rushed to the hospital for smoke inhalation. The 65-year-old survivor also suffering from smoke inhalation is in stable condition.

The cause is under investigation.

In another part of Brooklyn on Sunday, firefighters were still dousing a massive warehouse fire that started Saturday. Fire Department officials say air quality in Williamsburg has been compromised by the blaze that left one person injured from smoke inhalation.
