A worker was rushed to hospital after suffering burns at a building in Sunnyside Tuesday.

The man was working inside 39-35 47th Ave. — where AMS Dental Laboratory Inc. is located according to online listings — when he was burned at around 11 a.m.

It’s unclear at this time whether he was burned in an explosion.

The FDNY responded to a report of an explosion in a shed at the address. An aerial view of the address shows a shed on the back roof of the building.
