Four families left homeless after fire rips through their Hunts Point building
Four families in Hunts Point are left homeless just before Christmas.
Fire officials say the blaze started in a sixth floor apartment where a resident was boiling water on the stove but fell asleep. Randy Mouzen says he was using the stove and hot water to keep warm.
The blaze quickly spread to three other apartments on the top floor. Five people suffered minor injuries. Power in the building also had to be shut down for a while just as a precaution.
The Red Cross is helping the tenants who cannot return to their apartments.
