THE BRONX — Nearly a dozen firefighters were injured battling a blaze at a Bronx furniture store on Sunday.

Flames were found in both the cellar and the first floor.

Emergency medical services treated 11 firefighters. None of the injuries were life threatening.

The heat and humidity made fighting the fire even worse, Jardin said.
