"Numerous people were brought out of the building by the firefighters on scene", said New York City fire chief Daniel Nigro.

At least 12 people were injured early on Tuesday after a huge fire tore through an apartment building in NY, reports said.

The blaze came only days after the deadliest residential fire to hit the city in at least 25 years swept through a Bronx apartment building, killing 12.

"Our units arrived and were immediately faced with heavy fire".

"Based on the info now, I'm sorry to report 12 New Yorkers are dead, including one child".

The FDNY said more than 200 firefighters were battling the blaze, and that 16 people - including nine children - suffered non-life threatening injuries.

It took the fire crews eight hours to control the blaze on the Bronx's Commonwealth Avenue.

The fire is believed to have started in the Beverly Hills Furniture store on the street level of the four-floor building.

Another resident escaped with her two children and dog. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called it the worst fire tragedy the city has seen in a quarter century.
