Fire rips though Hunts Point apartment building
Three days before Christmas, four Bronx families are homeless after a two-alarm fire rips through an apartment building in Hunts Point. Fire officials say the blaze started in a sixth floor apartment and spread to three others on the same floor. One of the residents says he was boiling water on the stove to stay warm, but he fell asleep and the pot boiled over. He says he had to use his stove as a heater because his landlord hasn't been giving his family enough heat. The building management company has not return phone calls for comment.
