A rookie firefighter battling his first blaze helped save the lives of four children — including a 5-month-old — when a Brooklyn apartment erupted in flames early Sunday.
Probationary firefighter Jordan Sullivan, 36, pulled up with his fellow Bravest to the Wyckoff Gardens city housing complex in Boerum Hill at around 1:30 a.m.
“On the way in, my heart was racing. I was thinking my first fire, I was excited,’’ said Sullivan, of Ladder Co. 105.
“But once I got to the fire floor, it was automatic.”
He fought his way through fire and thick black smoke to make his way into the apartment.
He soon found the youngest victim.
“The baby was in the carriage,” he said.
“The baby was not conscious. I just knew I had to get the baby out.”
He grabbed the child and ran into the hallway.
He handed off the baby to another firefighter and went right back inside the apartment to help with the search.
“Visibility was very poor,” Sullivan said. “It was very hard to see. There were flames.
“I checked behind the door for victims,’’ he said.
