STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — A firefighter was injured when a second-alarm fire ravaged a home in Midland Beach, charring the exterior and exposing beams in the attic.

On Thursday morning, windows and doors to the home at 1150 Mason Avenue were covered with boards. The blaze was reported at 7:28 p.m. Wednesday at the three-story, 20-by-40-foot home, according to a spokesman for the FDNY.

A firefighter who suffered serious injuries that were not considered life-threatening was transported to Staten Island University Hospital in Ocean Breeze. A civilian refused medical attention, the FDNY spokesman said.

The fire was raised to a second alarm with about 25 units and 106 firefighters battling the blaze until it was placed under control at 9:39 p.m., the FDNY spokesman said.

The FDNY requested a structural stability inspection for the home due to the fire, according to the city Buildings Department public records.
