NEW YORK/January 2, 2018 (AP)(STL.News) —The Fire Department of New York says 12 people are hurt, one seriously, in a fire raging through a Bronx building.
Fire officials say they responded to the blaze at a four-story building near the Bronx Zoo in Van Nest at about 5:30 a.m. Tuesday.
WABC-TV reports there are twelve apartments in the building, but the blaze appears to have started in a furniture store on the first floor.
WNBC-TV reports at least 150 firefighters are battling the fire.
The blaze comes only days after the deadliest residential fire to hit New York City in at least a quarter-century swept through a Bronx apartment building, killing 12 people.
