An early morning fire shot through a Brooklyn childcare center on Sunday, dramatic video shows.

Video of the early morning blaze shows no fewer than three trucks outside Yeled v’Yalda Early Childhood Center on Farragut Road in Canarsie, while firefighters plow their way through the building’s burning stairwell.

In the clip, the fire appears to be concentrated on the top floor and roof, which are both engulfed in flames. Later in the video, the top floor looks to have been completely crisped by the inferno.

FDNY had the situation under control at 6:37 a.m., less than an hour after the initial emergency call.

“We could smell the smoke, but the firefighters got here fast,” said one local, Abe Lexxon, 52.

No one was inside the school at the time of the blaze, an FDNY spokesman said.

Sixty firefighters responded to the scene. One was later treated for minor injuries at Brookdale Hospital.

The blaze, which began on the fourth floor, appeared to have been caused by a problem with the electrical system, a fire department source said.
