NEW YORK (AP) — The Fire Department of New York says a blaze raging in a Bronx apartment building has seriously injured 15 people.
The FDNY says in a tweet that's the number of injuries currently reported from the fire near the Bronx Zoo.
FDNY photos show ladders stretched to the roof of the five-story building. Some 170 firefighters are on the scene.
City Department of Buildings records show the building is a walk-up apartment house.
City officials are advising people in the area to close their windows to keep out the smoke.
