A roaring fire broke out in a high-rise apartment building in East Harlem early Friday and injured more than a half-dozen people, firefighters say.
Nine people were injured the blaze, fire crews said. One of them is in critical condition, one suffered serious but non life-threatening injuries and seven others, including two firefighters, suffered minor injuries.
The FDNY rushed to East 112th Street just after 3 a.m. to find the high-rise up in flames, fire officials said. The fire was knocked down about an hour later, and the injured were all taken to an area hospital to be treated.
The fire broke out on the sixth floor, officials said. The cause is still under investigation. The injured civilians all lived in the same apartment.
