Three dead, five hurt in bloody night across the Big Apple

An elderly man was found dead after a fire in Brooklyn that authorities say was intentionally set — part of a deadly night in the Big Apple which saw two others killed and five hurt in separate incidents.

The body of the victim, 70, was discovered in a bedroom of 371 Monroe St. in Bedford-Stuyvesant at about 11:15 p.m. Friday, and a woman, 65, was taken to Woodhull Hospital with smoke inhalation, police said.

The city medical examiner will determine the cause of death, but the FDNY fire marshal deemed the blaze was intentionally set.
