A man was killed in a Brooklyn blaze early today, authorities said.
The 39-year-old accidentally started the fire while smoking in bed at a second-floor Midwood residence on Ocean Avenue near Avenue I, police sources said.
Sixty firefighters rushed to the scene, extinguishing the flames shortly before 1:15 a.m., according to an FDNY spokesman.
Fire marshals don’t believe the fire is suspicious after a preliminary investigation, authorities added.
