Children Among 16 Hurt as Another Inferno Devours Building in the Bronx

The fire this time

Investigators believe the fire started in a first-floor furniture store around 5:30 a.m. Tuesday. Video from the scene showed flames and smoke pouring from the building.

NY mayor Bill de Blasio described the incident as "the worst fire tragedy we have seen in this city in a quarter century".

The building includes three floors of apartments over retail spaces.

"Our units arrived and were immediately faced with heavy fire", Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said.

Adults and children fled from the three stories of apartments above, including a man who ran outside with no shirt and no shoes.

Officials say firefighters cleared the building, and no people have been reported missing.

Firefighters are battling a stubborn six-alarm fire at a building in the Bronx.

The massive fire comes less than a week after another fire, caused by a child playing with a stove, killed at least 12 people, including several children. The cause of the fire is unknown.

Officials say over 200 firefighters have responded to the blaze at a four-storey building near the Bronx Zoo in Van Nest.

Mayor Bill de Blasio called it the "worst fire tragedy we have seen in this city in at least a quarter century". Some residents were allowed to return to that building over the weekend to gather belongings.
