Over 50 people have been injured in a fire apartment that broke out on Sunday (9) morning in the Bronx, according to FDNY.

FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro said during a briefing Sunday afternoon. At least 32 people suffered “life-threatening injuries,” he said.

About 200 members of the New York City Fire Department were on scene of the fire, which took place on the third floor of a 19-story residential apartment building. The fire has been “knocked down,” the FDNY said.

The department began receiving calls — including a number from residents in upper floors — about the fire a little before 11 a.m

The department posted several images of the scene at 333 East 181st Street showing ladders extending into apartment windows as well as a number of broken windows.

Nigro said the cause of the fire remained under investigation, but officials determined that the door to the apartment where the flames broke out was left open.

“The door to that apartment was left open, causing the fire to spread and the smoke to spread,” he said. “This fire took its toll on our city.”

Nigro said many of the people who were injured suffered smoke inhalation.

Mayor Eric Adams, who held a news conference with FDNY officials, said the painful impact of the fire would be felt by the entire city.
