Four firefighters were injured putting out a two-alarm blaze in South Ozone Park.

The Deliverance Tabernacle Church caught fire about 3 a.m. Monday. The FDNY crew was able to extinguish the flames after about an hour and had no problems with frozen fire hydrants, despite conflicting reports.

“Reports said [there were problems] but we just confirmed the hydrants [were functioning]”, said an FDNY spokesperson.

The four hurt firefighters sustained minor injuries and were taken to Jamaica Hospital.

Members of the congregation on Sutter Avenue could not immediately be reached for comment.
