Police identify 7 more victims of NYC's deadliest in decades

Mensah's family, who live two buildings away, said he rescued almost a half-dozen people and died while returning to save more.

It was the second deadly residential blaze in NY, a city of 8.5 million people, in less than two weeks.

The blaze broke out on the first floor of a five-story building just before 7 p.m. and quickly ripped through the roughly century-old structure, which stands in a row of similar apartment buildings a block from the grounds of the Bronx Zoo. The fire started when a three-year-old child was playing with the burners on a stove top. Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio also plans to head there.

Some families in the apartment building are part of the parish so he rushed to the location "as soon as I could get there", he said.

A fire commissioner Friday said a mother and her two young children fled the first-floor apartment after a 3-year-old boy ignited the fire by turning on a stove.

D&E Equities said through spokesman Ronn Torossian that it is communicating with the city about the Thursday fire in the Bronx.

The Fire Department of NY says a blaze raging in a Bronx apartment building has seriously injured 15 people.

A spokesman for the city's Department of Housing Preservation & Development said the 26-unit building has a "relatively low history of fix violations".

Vanessa Mensah, 20, said her older brother's heroism hasn't lessened the family's misery.

They left the door open, Nigro said, which allowed the blaze to rapidly spread up the stairs. Stewart-Francis' husband, Holt Francis, was hospitalized, the family said.

"I don't know what to do, and I don't know how to feel", Stewart-Francis' mother, Ambrozia Stewart, told The New York Times.

Despite a nine-year layoff, Gruden has been putting together a staff behind the scenes and is serious about making a return. The Bucs are 4-11 heading into Sunday's finale after finishing 9-7 and barely missing the playoffs in Koetter's debut year.

Twum Bredu (BREH'-doo) says Mensah had recently graduated from Army National Guard boot camp.

The New York Police Department says those who died in the Bronx fire Thursday night include girls ages 1, 2 and 7, and a boy. One family is still looking for a missing son, according to WABC.

A priest in the Bronx, New York, tended to grieving families and asked for prayers for them as well as for victims of a December 28 fire, one of the deadliest in New York City and the borough's history, which left at least 12 dead and many fighting for their lives.

Except for the September 11 terror attacks, it was the city's deadliest fire since 87 people were killed at a social club fire in the Bronx in 1990. Investigators are working to determine the cause and why the fire moved so quickly. In addition to the 12 who died, including four children, another four people who were critically injured in the Thursday night blaze were "fighting for their lives", the mayor said.

Some tenants of the building climbed down fire escapes.
