Fire officials said they responded to the blaze at the building near the Bronx Zoo in Van Nest at about 5:30 local time (10:30 GMT) on Tuesday.

At least 23 people were injured Tuesday when fire raced through a Bronx flat - just five days after the 12 others died when the NY borough suffered the city's worst fire in 25 years. The cause of the fire was not immediately known.

New York City fire department tweeted that over 200 fire fighters continued to fight the fire at 1547 Commonwealth Ave' in Bronx. At least 12 people were injured. "Four people are critically injured, fighting for their lives, and there are other serious injuries as well". There were numerous injuries reported from the morning fire which took over 200 firefighters to control.

Apartments are located above the first floor of the building. Another resident escaped with her two children and dog. Firefighters have been pulled from the building and fight the blaze from outside, the FDNY said.

The mayor said a child playing with a stove apparently touched off last week's blaze.

De Blasio called it the "worst fire tragedy we have seen in this city in at least a quarter century".
