16 injured in huge fire in the Bronx

Firefighters are battling a stubborn six-alarm fire at a building in the Bronx.

At least 23 people were injured Tuesday when fire raced through a Bronx flat - just five days after the 12 others died when the NY borough suffered the city's worst fire in 25 years.

Flames and smoke could be seen pouring from the building.

Fire officials say the fire started inside the furniture store on the first floor of the building and quickly spread. People had very little time to react.

Four of the 22 people injured were brought to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, the spokesman said. She was getting ready for work when she smelled smoke.
