  • Survivors of devastating Bronx fire allowed to return to building

At least eight people were injured in a fire raging through a Bronx building, the New York Fire Department said on Tuesday.

"Our units arrived and were immediately faced with heavy fire".

It has been four days since flames tore through the structure on Prospect Avenue, killing 12 people.

Four of the 22 people injured were brought to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, the spokesman said. The others were described as minor. There were numerous injuries reported from the morning fire which took over 200 firefighters to control.

There are twelve apartments in the building.

Five hours later, the fire crews were still fighting to control the blaze on the Bronx's Commonwealth Avenue. Another resident escaped with her two children and dog.

Over 20 fire extinguishing vehicles and more than 100 firefighters are trying to extinguish the blaze. The fire started at a furniture store on the ground floor and quickly spread throughout the building. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called it the worst fire tragedy the city has seen in a quarter century.

That blaze started after a three-year-old boy was playing with a stove.
