The FDNY has started investigating the deadly Brooklyn Sunday blaze that killed a firefighter and a 21-year-old resident.

The FDNY has flown drones into the destroyed Canarsie home Monday in an attempt to locate where the fatal blaze started that killed FDNY Firefighter Timothy Klein.

Fire marshals also sifted through the rubble on Avenue N near E. 108th St. to find the flashpoint while going through the history of the building to see if the FDNY had responded to the home for a past fire or any other emergency.

This early, FDNY investigators believe the three-alarm blaze started somewhere on the first floor.

Souces said Klein and his team were dousing the fire on the second floor when the building became unstable, and the ceiling collapsed.

According to reports, after Klein was caught in the rubble, he was rushed to Brookdale University Hospital but couldn’t be saved.

The three firefighters with him managed to escape the collapse, two by jumping out a window onto a tower ladder and a third by racing down a flight of stairs.

Meanwhile, the funeral arrangements for FDNY Firefighter Timothy Klein were announced Tuesday.

A funeral service for Klein has been set for 11 a.m. Friday at the Church of St. Frances DeSalles in Belle Harbor, Queens, the church confirmed.

A wake will also be held Wednesday and Thursday at McManus Funeral Home in Flatlands, Brooklyn.

The hero firefighter lived in Belle Harbor.
