Fire ripped through a three-story Brooklyn home Saturday killing a 79-year-old wheelchair-bound woman, officials said.

The blaze started about 8:40 p.m. in the basement of the residence on Quincy St. near Bedford Ave. in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

The victim, Elizabeth Mahone, who was born in the building, was disabled after a stroke, said neighbors.

Firefighters found Mahone in the first-floor living room. Medics were unable to revive her, and she was declared dead at the scene.

“She was a little old and couldn’t get around that great,” said Assistant Fire Chief Joseph Woznica. “So that might have been part of the reason why she couldn’t escape.”
