Heartbreaking video shows a Brooklyn boy who lost his mother and three siblings in a house fire Monday - singing angelically about how he can't live without her.

A 45-year-old husband and his 40-year-old wife lived in the house with their six children, according to the New York Post.

Ten other people were injured in the blaze that broke out inside a two-and-a-half-story home just before 2:30 a.m. Monday on East 14th Street in Sheepshead Bay, the FDNY said.

Eight others, including five firefighters, suffered minor injuries.

All four victims were found on the second floor once firefighters extinguished the blaze.

Police are investigating whether the blaze was started by an oil-fed menorah used for the holiday, according to local media reports. Three of the family members, the father and two of his children, remain in critical condition.

Two firefighters were among the injured, but they are expected to recover.

The fire was likely sparked on the first floor, where the Azans lit their Chanukah menorah, according to relatives.

The family name was identified by the Yeshiva World News website as Azan.
