NEW YORK (AP) — A fire in an abandoned house in Queens has killed three men who apparently were squatting there.

Authorities say the three victims were in the house on 110th Road in Jamaica when the fire broke out just before midnight Thursday. The unidentified men were pronounced dead at the scene.

About 100 firefighters battled the blaze. A Fire Department spokesman says four of them were treated for minor injuries.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
