NEW YORK - A fire in an abandoned house in Queens has killed three men who apparently were squatting there.
Authorities say the three victims were in the house at 190-12 110 Road in St. Albans when the fire broke out just before midnight Thursday. The unidentified men were pronounced dead at the scene.
About 100 firefighters battled the blaze. A Fire Department spokesman says four of them were treated for minor injuries.
The cause of the fire was under investigation.
