The blaze broke out just after 1 a.m. at a building on Nostrand Avenue in Flatbush. Crews were able to bring the flames under control after nearly an hour.
The most serious of those injured was a man in his 60s who had to jump from a second story window. A second man was also forced to jump from the building.
All of the fire victims were rushed to Staten Island University Hospital.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
