NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — An intense fire in the Bronx has left a family homeless and two people injured.
As 1010 WINS’ Glenn Schuck reported, the blaze started around 5:30 a.m. at a vacant 2 1/2-story home at 1700 Topping Avenue in the Claremont section of the Bronx, leading to a partial building collapse. The fire also spread to the home next door.
“My dad say, ‘Get out! Get out!’ And I just get out, my mom get out, my sister, everyone in the house,” Henrik Asmenan, who lives in the home, told Schuck. “And we just run downstairs, come outside.
“I don’t think we can live here today. I’m just going to try (to) get some clothes, and I don’t know where I’m going to go.”
