NEW YORK >> Authorities in New York City say 34 people have been injured overnight in a fire on Staten Island.

The Fire Department says 23 firefighters and 11 civilians suffered injuries ranging from minor to serious. Nearly all were taken to the hospital but none of the injuries is considered life-threatening.

About 200 firefighters responded to the blaze at 1 a.m. Thursday. 

A Fire Department spokesman says the blaze consumed three, 2-story townhouses.

He said around 6 a.m. that the fire was expected to be brought under control shortly.

The Staten Island Advance says a man screaming from a window tossed two small children down to a couple below.

Anthony DiSimone, who caught the boy, says the children were shaken up but seemed OK.

Firefighters eventually got the man out as well.
