Two people were injured, one critically, in an apartment building fire in the Lindenwood section of Queens Friday morning.

The fire broke out in the Ardsley apartment complex on 88th Street just after 7:30 a.m.

Firefighters fought through the smoke filled fourth floor to find a woman passed out between the bedroom and hallway in the apartment.

They performed CPR on the woman as they carried her down the stairs and to a waiting ambulance.

The woman was rushed to Jamaica Hospital, where she was listed in critical condition, but was expected to survive.

A man in the apartment sustained less serious injuries. He was also rushed to the hospital, where he is stable.

The cause was under investigation.
