NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A fire in the Bronx has left two people dead.
There is no word on what caused the fire at 2045 Story Ave., but a police crime scene unit and the medical examiner were on the scene, WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported.
Investigators said the circumstances surrounding the fire seemed suspicious, 1001 WINS’ Carol D’Auria said. Firefighters said they had to break down the front door to get in, and after doing so, they found the back door had been left wide open.
The police presence also suggested that the fire was possibly set to cover up another crime, Diamond reported. Investigators were combing through the basement apartment.
