An FDNY engine truck heading to a fire crashed into a Brooklyn boutique, demolishing the storefront, officials said Monday.

The firetruck collided with another vehicle on Avenue U near E. 4th St. in Gravesend about 11:40 p.m. Sunday then burst through the security gate of Coquette Kids, which was closed for the night.

Six firefighters and the car’s driver were taken to local hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.

The storefront was reduced to a pile of twisted metal and debris.

The injured firefighters were treated at NYU Langone Hospital – Brooklyn while the car driver was taken to New York-Presbyterian Methodist Hospital.
