Fire burns through row of businesses in the Bronx

FORDHAM, the Bronx — Flames burned through a row of buildings in the Bronx Tuesday morning, FDNY said.

Fire officials said at 10:30 a.m. that the blaze was under control. It began at about 5:30 a.m. at 316 E. 194th St. in the Fordham section of the borough, officials said.

That location is amid a row of seven businesses, including a laundromat, a pizza restaurant, a pharmacy, barbershops and a tax preparation business.

 

Firefighters told PIX11 they believe the fire may have started in the laundromat, where the roof collapsed into the business below.

No injuries have been reported.

The city's Department of Buildings is on the scene to access the structural stability of the building, a spokesperson for the agency said.
