Bath Beach, Brooklyn- Early this a morning an explosion blew out a window of a second-floor apartment and seriously injured one person.

The blast occurred just before 8:30 AM this morning at a two-story apartment building at 159 Bay 49 St.

A small fire started because of the explosion, but firefighters were able to quickly extinguish it.

Four people suffered injuries, however only one of them were serious, according to the FDNY.
