A Queens firefighter working at Ground Zero suffered a fractured leg yesterday when a steel beam fell on him, officials said.

The injured 51-year-old firefighter, whose name was not released by the Fire Department last night, sustained a compound fracture to his lower right leg "when a structural piece of steel shifted on him" at around 7:45 p.m., said FDNY spokesman Joseph Cestari.

The 21-year Fire Department veteran was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition. He was expected to undergo surgery last night, Cestari said.
