A 9-year-old boy died when a fire tore through his Queens home early Wednesday, cops said.

The blaze broke out inside the three-story home on 102nd Road near 84th St. in Ozone Park about 2 a.m., officials said.

It took firefighters about half an hour to put the blaze out. They found little Remi Miguel Gomez Hernandez dead inside the home.

Ten other tenants and a firefighter were taken to Jamaica Hospital with various injuries not considered life threatening.

Fire marshals were investigating the cause of the fire.
