Top Stories - Tue, 01/02/2018 - 11:09

A fire broke out in the Bronx neighbourhood of New York, just days after another residential fire killed 12 people. The blaze ripped through a four-story building housing a furniture shop and apartments leaving more than a dozen people injured.  The fire broke out in the Van Nest neighbourhood at around 5.30am with more than 200 firefighters tackling the blaze for two hours in below freezing temperatures. It comes less than a week after another blaze in the same area killed 12 people - the city's deadliest residential fire in almost 30 years. At least sixteen people have been injured in Tuesday's fire, including nine children, according to CBS New York. None of the injuries are considered life threatening. It is unclear what caused the fire, but it is thought to have started in the furniture store located on the ground floor. Smoke and flames could be seen reaching the top floor as firefighters smashed windows to reach people trapped inside their flats.  #FDNY members continue to operate on scene this morning of a 7-alarm fire, 1547 Commonwealth Ave #Bronx.
