Once again, an apartment building fire in the Bronx resulted in 20 people being injured on Sunday. Although the cause is under investigation, reports indicate that most of the injuries were due to smoke inhalation. Smoke is among the leading cause of injuries when there is a fire in an apartment building in New York. This is particularly true for both children and the elderly. It is expected that the New York CIty Fire Department or the New York City Buildings Department will conduct an investigation to determine the cause of this fire.
