Firefighters say the fire started in a fourth-floor apartment and then jumped to an adjacent home.
Fire officials report that two of the firefighters were electrocuted and are recovering in the Cornell Medical Burn Unit; 13 other firefighters were taken to Jacobi Medical Center.
The Red Cross and a missionary group helped those affected find housing, clothing and provided food.
Officials say they are investigating the cause of the fire.
