December 04, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Fire swept through a two-story rowhouse in Brooklyn yesterday, killing a man who was trapped inside.

The victim was believed to be a 31-year-old man, but city fire officials had not confirmed his identity late last night.

The fire started on the ground floor at 1348 Patapsco Ave. about 2 p.m. and took about a half-hour for 50 city firefighters to bring under control.

Two firefighters suffered minor steam burns and a third injured his foot, said city Fire Department spokesman Donald Heinbuch.
