1 Dead, 12 Injured in NYC Blaze

The Associated Press is reporting this morning that a fire on the Upper East Side of Manhattan has left one dead and four civilians (one seriously) injured along with seven firefighters who sustained minor injuries. The fire was called in at 3:30am in a building at East 93rd Street on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The flames spread quickly and at one point were shooting out the roof, sending burning embers onto nearby buildings. Some residents of the burning building fled into the streets in their pajamas. Officials don’t yet know where the fire started. The blaze is now extinguished. First Avenue is closed between 91st and 94th streets.
