Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “One man dead, woman hospitalized in Brooklyn apartment blaze”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A man died and a woman was hospitalized with critical injuries after a fire tore through their Brooklyn home early Wednesday, officials said.

The blaze erupted inside the victims’ fourth floor apartment on Fifth Ave. near Douglass St. in Park Slope just after 2 a.m.

Medics rushed both to New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, but the man could not be saved.

The Brooklyn man, whose name has not been released, is the fifth person to die in a fire across the five boroughs in the last 48 hours.

Retired NYPD sergeant Bernard Edwards, 85, was the first to perish when the fabric of his motorized reclining chair caught fire around 2:45 a.m. Monday at his home in the Bronx.
