Reuters reported. On the frigid morning, firefighters were battling not only the flames but the cold as well.

Over 20 fire extinguishing vehicles and more than 100 firefighters are trying to extinguish the blaze.


The multi-storey building is situated on the corner of the Commonwealth and Bronx River avenues in Van Nest.

"Praying for a swift recovery for all those injured", said Mayor Bill de Blasio on Twitter, thanking the fire department for its response. That inferno killed 12 people, four of them children.
