Firefighters battled a six-alarm fire in the Bronx neighborhood of New York City early Tuesday morning.
The Fire Department of New York says 23 people, including a firefighter, were hurt.
Fire officials say they responded to the blaze at a four-story building near the Bronx Zoo in Van Nest at about 5:30 a.m. Tuesday.
ABC affiliate WABC-TV reports there are twelve apartments in the building, but the blaze appears to have started in a furniture store on the first floor. Most of the injuries appear to be not life-threatening.
WNBC-TV reports at least 200 firefighters battled the fire.
The blaze comes only days after the deadliest residential fire to hit New York City in at least a quarter century swept through a Bronx apartment building, killing 12 people.
