A three-alarm fire swept through a 13-story apartment building on the Grand Concourse, last night, injuring more than two dozen residents and at least ten firefighters. Five people – all civilians - are in a serious condition, fire officials say.
The blaze, at 1749 Grand Concourse, started in a first floor apartment at approximately 9 p.m. Patricia Zenon, who lives in the apartment next door, said she heard glass smash. “I opened my door and came out into a wall of blackness.” she said.
The fire is not being treated as suspicious. More here in the Mount Hope Monitor.
