A four-alarm fire burned through a row home in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn Tuesday morning.

But not everyone could get out so easily. A 12-year-old and his mother, who live on the third floor, screamed for help and firefighters rescued them using a bucket.

Three residents and four firefighters suffered minor injuries.

Investigators are looking for what caused this fire.
