  • The fire this time

At least 23 people were injured in a fire that broke out in a building in the Bronx, New York City, on Tuesday, just days after a deadly fire killed 12 people in the same borough. The cause of the fire was not immediately known.

Fire Department of New York (FDNY) firemen work at an apartment building in the Bronx, New York, U.S., January 2, 2018.

At least 12 people have been injured.

Despite the severity of the blaze, he assured the public that none of the injuries were life threatening. The other victims suffered minor injuries. On the frigid morning, firefighters were battling not only the flames but the cold as well.

The four-story building is home to a commercial furniture store and apartment units.

It took the fire crews eight hours to control the blaze on the Bronx's Commonwealth Avenue. The fire apparently started in a furniture store, Nigro said. Another resident escaped with her two children and dog.

"I woke up my husband, my kids and said listen there's a fire in the building", a woman who lived at the address told ABC7NY.

The mayor said a child playing with a stove apparently touched off last week's blaze.
