Firefighters miraculously rescued three children — including one as young as a month old — from a burning Brooklyn home on Saturday morning, it was reported.

According to Fire Department sources, the three youngsters — aged one month, five months and two years old — were found in a second floor of a back bedroom at 716 East 89th St. in Canarsie.

In all, nine people were injured in the two-alarm blaze, which broke out just after 9:30 a.m. on Nov. 20.

Upon arriving at the scene, firefighters encountered heavy flames emanating from the basement that quickly spread to the first- and second-floors, according to Deputy Chief Joseph Moro.

FDNY personnel used five hose lines to knock down the main body of fire, which was brought under control at about 10:40 a.m. Saturday. 

Fire marshals are investigating the cause of the inferno.
