A man and a woman are dead following a fire at the Marble Hill Houses in upper Manhattan.
Police say the 47-year-old man and the 46-year-old woman were in an apartment when flames broke out Friday.
It took firefighters about 45 minutes to get the fire under control.
Both victims were taken in critical condition to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, where they later died from their injuries.
Three other people and one firefighter were treated for minor injuries sustained in the blaze.
No criminality is suspected.
