Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Fire officials say young boy and his sister are in critical condition after fire ripped through their apartment in Brooklyn early Saturday morning.

4-year-old Rolando Rich and sister Dasani Rich, 3, were seriously injured when the fire broke out at the Van Dyck Houses in the Brownsville section around 2:45 a.m.

Both victims are in critical condition with burns and smoke inhalation at Brookdale Hospital.

The fire started in the master bedroom of the second floor apartment and the oldest brother Darnell Smith, 15, was able to get his 11-year-old brother, Kamari Daniels out the apartment, but couldn't reach his youngest siblings.

The two children were rescued from the second floor apartment by firefighters.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
