More Than 20 Are Hurt in Bronx Apartment Fire

Meet Four Inspiring Kids Tackling Cancer

At least 12 people were injured early on Tuesday after a huge fire tore through an apartment building in NY, reports said. "Four people are critically injured, fighting for their lives, and there are other serious injuries as well".

Firefighters broke windows to get residents out of the building as the fire continued to rage in the upper floors.

Photos from the scene showed the entire building wrapped in smoke as flames became visible.

The massive fire comes less than a week after another fire, caused by a child playing with a stove, killed at least 12 people, including several children.

Long lines for DFW global passengers due to US Customs computer issue
Officials said the issue lasted about two hours, leading to longer lines and frustration among global travelers. Although the systems are working again, San Diego travelers may still face a backlog of lines and delays.

"Children starting fires is not rare", FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro said on Friday, adding that the stairway "acted like a chimney". The cause of the fire was not immediately revealed.

Last week's fire was started when a three-year-old boy ignited his mum's apartment by fiddling with her stove in the early hours of the morning.

Mayor Bill de Blasio called it the "worst fire tragedy we have seen in this city in at least a quarter century".

Apartments are located above the first floor of the building.
