MORRISANIA, The Bronx (PIX11) – A baby and his 25-year-old mother were among eight people injured in a fire early Friday morning in the Morrisania section of the Bronx, according to FDNY.

The FDNY said the fire started around 6 a.m. at a home on Tinton Avenue. Neighbors recorded cell phone video of flames shooting from a second-story window.

Gerald Richards told PIX11 News he escaped the fire by breaking a window with his hand.

“I was awakened with loud shouting. My daughter and son were shouting. I tried to open the door and ask what happened, and smoke came inside, so I closed the door back,” Richards said. “I had to break a window. I couldn’t get the latch, you know, the smoke. The place is so dark.”

Richards said his son made it out, but his daughter-in-law and 1-year-old grandson had to be rescued from the second floor. The FDNY said both were unconscious and taken to the hospital in critical condition with smoke inhalation.

“I was in total shock, so my focus was my immediate family,” Richards said.

Five EMTs were also injured in the blaze.

The cause of the fire remained under investigation. The FDNY said it is not considered suspicious.
