WATCH: Another massive blaze sweeps through Bronx building; 23 hurt
The Fire Department of New York says 23 people, including a firefighter, are hurt following a Bronx blaze.
All of them are expected to be OK.
Investigators believe the fire started in a first-floor furniture store around 5:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Adults and children fled from the three stories of apartments above, including a man who ran outside with no shirt and no shoes. Nearby, icicles hung from power lines and ladders.
Resident Erica Ortiz told WCBS that a window guard blocked a fire escape. She says she tried to kick it open, to no avail.
Over 200 firefighters battled the blaze.
The blaze comes a week after 12 people were killed in a fire just a few blocks away in the Bronx.
