COUNTRY CLUB, The Bronx (PIX11) —  A four-alarm fire ripped through a building on Dean Avenue in the Country Club section Thursday morning.

Eleven civilians and five firefighters were injured. None of the injuries were considered serious.

The roof collapsed in the apartment complex at 1020 Dean Ave., which will likely have to be torn down.  The families who lived there have been left homeless.
