An early-morning fire in the Bronx has sent seven firefighters to the hospital.
All of the injuries are said to be minor.
Flames broke out around 4:40 this morning in a two-story building on 169th Street in Concourse. It took firefighters about 20 minutes to knock it down.
Residents on the second floor escaped safely.
"We arrived and we had fire, heavy fire on the first floor. It got into the second floor. And from the second floor, it jumped across into the exposure," said FDNY Chief Rob Lombardo. "Then we had heavy fire in the cockloft."
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
