New York fire officials say one person died and a second person was taken to the hospital with serious burns following a four-alarm blaze in a Hamilton Heights apartment building Monday.
According to the FDNY, the fire started at about 5:45 p.m. in a six-story building at 512 W. 136th St., just off Amsterdam Avenue.
Ten firefighters were also injured, two seriously, but none have life-threatening injuries, a FDNY spokesman said.
The fire raged through all floors and into the bottom of the building's roof, the FDNY spokesman said. The blaze appears to have started in a first-floor hallway. Fire marshals are investigating.
No information was available about which hospitals the injured were taken to.
