Candle caused massive fire in high-rise apartment

Candle caused massive fire in high-rise apartment

The inferno began in a third-floor apartment in building on West 59th street at around 5pm yesterday.

One of Santoro's friends ran out into the hallway, "and saw the smoke". Twenty-four people, including four firefighters and an 8-year-old girl, were hurt, but their injuries are not thought to be life threatening.

Firefighters are still working to put out the fire. "No way I could see anything, so I went back into my apartment".

The young girl in cardiac arrest was found on the 21st floor and was given CPR by residents of the building before firefighters rescued her and transported her to the hospital for treatment, according to the television station. Three of the civilians suffered serious injuries. She was attempting to evacuate her apartment to the roof and was overcome by smoke in the stairwell. She's on the mend, officials said.

Part of the building is used as accommodation for doctors who work at the St Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital.

The other injured children included a 1-month old and a 1-year-old. A spokesman for Mayor Bill de Blasio said he had spoken to the hospitalized, injured firefighter who "was in good spirits".

"We had heavy fire conditions on the third floor that basically incinerated a one-bedroom apartment, we had heavy winds blowing into the apartment", FDNY Chief of Department James Leonard said. Leonard said that 9 people became trapped on the roof, they were in no danger and were safely removed. If people leave their apartments, he reminded them of the importance of shutting doors behind themselves.
