At Least 12 Dead in New York City Apartment Fire
It’s a holiday tragedy. At least 12 people were killed and four critically injured when a fire ripped through a five-story apartment building in the Bronx borough of New York City on Thursday night. An infant was among the dead. Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said the fire — the deadliest for the city in more than a quarter-century — was ”historic in its magnitude.” Investigators had yet to determine a cause for the fire on the exceptionally cold night.
