Fire rips through Bronx building, injuring at least 16, including children

Survivors of devastating Bronx fire allowed to return to building

The fire went to six alarms and dozens of fire vehicles were on scene as thick smoke poured out of the building and flames were through the roof.

At least 23 people were injured Tuesday when fire raced through a Bronx flat - just five days after the 12 others died when the NY borough suffered the city's worst fire in 25 years. At least 12 people were injured.

The fire broke out around 5:30 a.m. [EST] Tuesday in a furniture store in the four-story building at the corner of East Tremont Avenue and Commonwealth Avenue. "By the time we opened the door in the hallway, there was black smoke". "I told everybody in the building, 'Run, run, run.

Four people are critically injured, fighting for their lives, and there are other serious injuries as well".

One resident escaped the burning building with his three young children.

Wind Chills Drop Below Zero Again
Feel like temps once again dip into the negatives Monday night as actual lows plunge into the single digits. A slight chance (20 percent) of stray snow showers in the early evening, especially south of the city.

The flames quickly spread through the building. More than 250 firefighters were at the scene.

There are no reports of anyone missing at this moment.

The cause of the fire is not immediately known.

On Thursday, 12 people, including children, died in a fast-moving fire in the Bronx, also near the zoo.
