Four people were seriously injured – including a young girl – after a fire broke out inside a house in Woodside early Friday morning.

The victims were inside a two-story house on 64-05 35th Ave. when the blaze started, police said. Some of the victims were trapped on the upper floor, according to the FDNY.

The FDNY was alerted to the blaze at 12:12 a.m. and sent out 12 units consisting of 60 firefighters, a spokesperson for the FNDY said.

Firefighters pulled the victims–all female–from the inferno and they were all transferred to nearby hospitals in critical condition, according to police.

The young girl and a 24-year-old victim were transferred to Elmhurst hospital, police said.

A 56-year-old woman was transported to New York-Presbyterian Hospital Queens, while a 32-year-old woman was taken to Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan, police said.

All four victims are now listed as being in a stable condition and are expected to survive, police said.

Four firefighters were transferred to hospital with minor injuries, a NYPD spokesperson said.
