Sunday’s apartment building fire in the Bronx now ranks as one of the deadliest in New York City history.

SeventeenĀ  people were killed on Sunday January 9th 2022 when a fire was caused by a space heater setting a mattress on fire.

Nine of the victims were adults, eight were children.

Thirteen people are hospitalized in critical condition.

Mayor Eric Adams says it was the city’s worst blaze since a 1990 arson at a Bronx nightclub that claimed the lives of 87 people.
