US building fire kills more than a dozen, including children

TRT World says Nineteen people, including nine children, have been killed in an apartment fire in New York City, in what the city’s fire commissioner has called one of the worst blazes in recent memory.

Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said Sunday’s fire “started in a malfunctioning electric space heater” in an apartment unit spanning the second and third floors of the 19-story building. The door of the apartment was left open, allowing smoke to quickly spread throughout the building, Nigro said.

Stefan Ringel, a senior adviser to Mayor Eric Adams, confirmed the death toll on Sunday to The Associated Press, while a city official who was not authorised to speak publicly confirmed the number of children dead.
