An NYC firefighter was busted Saturday after a Queens bar brawl led to the death of a 55-year-old man, police said.

Justin Deieso, 35, was arrested and charged with assault in connection to the fight behind the Terrace Inn Bar & Grill on Francis Lewis Boulevard in Whitestone.

Cops arrived at the gin joint at 4 a.m. and found Devin Deegan of Flushing lying on the pavement after having suffered a blow to the head, an NYPD spokesman said.

The victim was taken to Flushing Hospital Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Charges against Deiseo — who records show made $85,292 in 2020 — may be upgraded once the Medical Examiner issues its report, police said.

Dr. Marielena Diakogiannis, a dentist with a practice near the back entrance of the bar on 20th Ave, said the neighborhood is quiet but the bar is not.
