19 dead, consisting of 9 kids, in New York City house fire
19 dead, consisting of 9 kids, in New York City house fire, NEW YORK CITY: Nineteen people, consisting of 9 children, have been eliminated in a home fire in New York City, in what the city’s fire commissioner called one of the worst blazes in recent memory.
Stefan Ringel, a senior advisor to Mayor Eric Adams, confirmed the death toll Sunday to The Associated Press, while a city official who was not authorized to speak publicly confirmed the variety of children dead.
More than five dozen people were hurt and 13 individuals were still in important condition in the healthcare facility, Ringel said. The bulk of victims were suffering from serious smoke inhalation, FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro said at an interview previously that afternoon.
According to the FDNY, around 200 firemens reacted to the scene at the Bronx’s Twin Park apartments, a 19-story building on East 181st Street.
Firefighters “found victims on every flooring and were taking them out in cardiac and breathing arrest,”Nigro stated. “That is unmatched in our city. We expect there to be many deaths.
“Nigro compared the intensity of the fire to the Pleased Land social club fire, which killed 87 individuals in 1990 when guy set fire to the building after entering into an argument with his former girlfriend and being thrown out of the club.
According to Nigro, Sunday’s fire came from a duplex apartment spanning the second and third floors. Firemens discovered the door to the apartment or condo open, he stated, which obviously enabled the fire to accelerate and spread out smoke upward rapidly.
The fire is not believed to be suspicious in origin however the cause is under examination.
Sunday’s fire comes simply days after a house fire in Philadelphia left 12 people – consisting of 8 children – dead.
