About 200 firefighters were battling the five-alarm fire that started in a duplex apartment on the third floor of a 19-story high-rise building at 333 East 181st Street in the Tremont section of the Bronx just before 11 a.m. Sunday.

  2. I want to know why there is no fire escape throughout the entire building and throughout NYCHA buildings around new york city I need an answer

  3. TONY SNOWS SONS WAS BOMED ALSO FRIDAY THE 13TH VALLEY PINES APTS MEDFORD OREGON APT 337 HE IS BEING HELD AS A POLITICAL PRISONER SURROUND BY ZERSETZUNG MARKUS WOLF

  4. Tragic? Yes. Do I feel bad for victims and families? Yes. But is the truth about the cause and spread of the fire being told? NO!!!! It was caused by a space heater and doors left open. NOT White people, systemic racism, landlord neglect or White supremacy. Blaming the wrong sources serves no purpose and does nothing to prevent future fires.

  5. one reason why i’m scared to live in apartment with tall buildings… so sorry for the lives lost

  6. A two year old child died the report doesn't investigate the property's condition or whether there were complaints made by the residents to the city about low heat or other code violations. Very sad and tragic to watch this 💔 Sending love and prayers to the bronx 💚 💚 💚

  7. MY CONDOLENCES TO THE ENTIRE CHURCH ⛪️, FAMILIES, FRIENDS, CLASSMATES, NEIGHBORS, NEIGHBORHOOD AND ASSOCIATES FAR NEAR AND WIDE….🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹

  8. OH WOW! BLESS HIS HEART ❤️ IT WAS HIS SPACE HEATER THAT STARTED THE FIRE 🔥 I KNOW HE FEELS SO BAD THAT HAPPENED…..

  9. I am surprised they do not have the external fire escapes outside the windows like a lot of old apartments in the USA. These should be reconsidered as may have been life savers in something like this.. this is so tragic and painful.

  10. I saw the news on prende tv or the tv I go to Bronx every 2 weeks how sad the fire happens to my cousin on the apartment wow I feel bad for the 9 kids that died sad 😔

  11. Space heaters/portable heaters should be illegal. They are so dangerous and start so many fires every year. Prayers for the people who were effected and lost loved ones. 🙏🏻❤️

  12. I guarantee the electric was not up to code. But publicly blasting a father and blaming them with specific details is just shameful. If you're running away from a fire to save you and your children's life, you're not thinking oh let me shut the door real quick. He had no idea this would happen. Yall should be ashamed

  13. Is there any mental health help for these people? Are the churches helping providing some comfort and food and shelter.

  14. Why don't they have fire escapes in tall buildings? Are they not providing heat in the building?.

  15. Why there no extinguishers And why he didn’t try to put the fire out with water why he left the door open every time you see it a African families are being burnt out burning down buildings I feel sorry for the other people who lost their lives because of his carelessness Just like the lady who let the kids in the apartment on Webster in the Bronx to go wash your clothes and left it incense burning like He made sure his age children survive but what about the other kids what about the other adults is his fault his burden to carry alone

  16. So sad. If only that door had been closed would have been fewer fatalities if not none. Lord be with all the families. 🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿

  17. “Everything in that apartment was black. My walls, my doors, my floors, my kids.”

    My condolences, but what?!? The kids weren’t black before?

  18. How do u lose track of ur kids or kids in a fire. That is the most prized possession. These parents are clowns. Im grabbing my child first. I cannot stand careless parents then they expect u to put ur life on the line to save them when they didn't do anything to save their child. This makes me sick!! 🤢💚🇳🇬

  19. A very bad situations. My thoughts for victims and their relatives (family, school, work, friends).

  20. How you got a building that tall with no fire escape and no sprinkler system…. one ite the other… not both….smh and saddened
