NEW YORK (AP) — Fire officials say faulty electrical wiring caused a fire in a Bronx building that injured a baby and five firefighters.
The Red Cross offered shelter and food to dozens of families displaced after Monday’s blaze in the five-story building in the Concourse Village neighborhood.
None of the injuries was life-threatening.
Officials say the fire started in ceiling wiring above a grocery store on the ground level and quickly spread to the apartments above. A smoke alarm in the first apartment did not activate but alarms went off in other apartments in the building.
