NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities say a man has been killed and five other people are injured following a fire at a three-story building in Flatbush, Brooklyn.

WABC (https://7ny.tv/1KLOSP1 ) says the man who died jumped out of the burning building around 2 a.m. Monday.

Another man jumped and survived. He landed on a restaurant awning, which broke his fall.

A passerby, Tariq Thomas, says he tried to help rescue people but was driven back by heat and smoke.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
