Fire in the Bronx leaves 28 homelessPosted: Updated:
A fire that broke out in an apartment building on Cauldwell Avenue has left 28 homeless.
Residents say Saturday night?s blaze was caused by an electrical fire inside one of the walls. However, officials say an official cause has yet to be determined. Residents say firefighters had to tear apart seven apartments trying to pinpoint where the fire was. Tenants say this is their building?s second fire in the past four months.
The 28 homeless individuals are staying in two different hotels. The Red Cross says the victims will meet with a caseworker to assess the damage.
