Bronx Apartment Fire Claims Lives
One man was pronounced dead at the scene. A woman and the baby died at a hospital. Four other civilians and two firefighters suffered minor injuries.
The fire was reported shortly before 8:00 a.m. Firefighters were on scene in three minutes and controlled the blaze in about thirty.
The FDNY says the fire apparently started in a fifth-floor bedroom and spread to the living room. The apartment is in a six-story building.
Fire marshals and the police are investigating the cause.
