Massive fire that killed 12 started by child playing with stove

first_imgIt’s the largest loss of life from a fire in New York City, other than the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attack, in more than a quarter century.‘This loss is unprecedented’The blaze broke out in the brick building on Prospect Avenue in the Bronx’s Belmont neighborhood at around 7 p.m. Eastern Time, forcing residents fleeing the flames out into the bitter cold, many without coats.Seven adults and five children died from the fire, including five who weren’t able to evacuate the burning building. Another four people who were critically injured in the blaze and hospitalized “are seriously fighting for their lives,” the fire commissioner said.“Last night’s tragic fire, other than 9/11, was the worst loss of life from a fire in our city in almost 28 years,” Nigro told reporters. “This loss is unprecedented.”‘We may lose others as well’Firefighters arrived on the scene within minutes, with more than 160 of them braving the frigid temperatures to battle the flames, quelling them completely by about 10 p.m. Eastern Time, according to the city fire department..The instability of the charred building has not allowed firefighters to make a full sweep of the building yet for any more fatalities.“The search of the building continues so we know that, even though it’s horrible to report 12 are dead already, we may lose others as well,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a press conference Thursday night.At least one person on every floor of the building was killed, according to city officials. Five people were pronounced dead on the scene, and seven later died in area hospitals.“I came out through the window. Yeah, there was smoke everywhere. I couldn’t see the door. The door was … I couldn’t see the door. Was covered in smoke already,” Matthew Igbinetion, a resident of the building, told ABC station WABC-TV.Children among the deadAmong the children who died from the fire were three young girls ages 1, 2 and 7 as well as a boy whose age has yet to be released, according to the New York City Police Department.“They were burned, even little kids on the stretchers, burned,” a resident of the building told WABC-TV in New York City.The seven adults killed include three women ages 19, 37 and 63.One family is still looking for a missing son, according to WABC-TV.The fire is the city’s deadliest, excluding the Sept. 11 attacks, since the fire at the Happy Land nightclub in the Bronx in March 1990, which killed 87 people.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

At least 12 people killed, including seven adults and five children. Relatedcenter_img The boy’s mother fled with her children, and left the door open to the burning apartment. The open door allowed the flames to quickly spread up the stairwell to the rest of the building.last_img read more

Celtic’s UCL qualifying defeat is ‘no embarrassment’, insists Brendan Rodgers

first_img Brendon Rodgers saw his Celtic side lose in Gibraltar Brendan Rodgers claimed there was ‘no embarrassment’ in losing his first game as Celtic boss 1-0 against part-time Lincoln Red Imps in the first leg of their Champions League qualifier at the Victoria Stadium.The Parkhead side were stunned when striker Lee Casciaro, who had scored Gibraltar’s first international goal against Scotland at Hampden in 2015, sensationally put the part-timers ahead in the 47th minute.Hoops striker Leigh Griffiths hit woodwork twice as the visitors battled back but the home side held out for a result which ranks as the most embarrassing in Celtic’s European history, although the Scottish champions will fancy their chances in the return game in Glasgow next week.Asked if there were red faces in the dressing room, the former Liverpool boss, who took over from Ronny Deila in May, said: “No. There is obvious disappointment.“There is no embarrassment. It was a tough game in tough conditions. We didn’t take our chances, they took their chance.“We dominated and created enough chances to score. Sometimes it can happen, obviously with the pitch, an awkward bounce and all of a sudden the player is in, it’s into the floor and goes in.“We have seen enough to see that we can get through in the second leg. Of course you are disappointed to lose.“It was difficult, of course. They set up 5-4-1. And it doesn’t matter the team, the level. Teams have good organisation, 11 players behind the ball.“Throw the pitch into that, it’s very, very tough for the players.“But we created enough chances, their keeper made fantastic saves. It gives us a bit of work to do in the second leg.”Rodgers’ message to Celtic fans, over 300 of whom were in the tiny stadium which was not full to its 2,000 capacity, was to “stay calm”.He said: “Celtic fans expect us to get through into the group stages. It was disappointing but the players gave everything they had.“The message to them (fans) is to stay calm. This is a good group of players, they are working hard and in a week’s time we will need them.“I always thought this qualification phase would be based on the second leg at home, so we will need that support and hopefully get the job done next week.“They were never in command. We were the team with dominance. What we lacked was the final touch, the final ball.“I’m not really (shocked). I’ve been around the game often enough, I know these results can happen. We stay calm. We need to put in a performance next week,“The result here complicates it a bit for us. We move on to next week.” 1last_img read more
