BRONX, New York — The Fire Department of New York says 16 people are hurt, four of them seriously, in a fire raging through a Bronx building.
Officials say over 200 firefighters have responded to the blaze at a four-story building near the Bronx Zoo in Van Nest. It was reported about 5:30 a.m. Tuesday.
There are twelve apartments in the building, but the blaze appears to have started in a first-floor furniture store.
Just days ago, 12 were killed in a fire also in the Bronx. It was started by a child playing with the burners on a stove.
