The blast occurred near noon in a three-story townhouse in the Longwood neighborhood. It triggered a two-alarm fire that destroyed the home and damaged several others around it. The blast was reportedly caused by a gas leak. “Our hearts go out to the family members for the loss of human life,” said New York Major Eric Adams. at a press briefing Tuesday. John Hodgens, chief of the New York Fire Department, added that the building next to the collapsed building had been badly damaged and also needed to be demolished. More than 100 fire and EMS crew members responded to the fire, according to local media. Eight injured have been reported by local officials, four of whom are residents and five are New York police officers treated for smoke inhalation. A 77-year-old woman was pronounced dead at a local hospital and two other women aged 82 and 68 were also treated but were reported stable. The blast was about five miles from the site of a January 9 fire caused by a malfunctioning space heater that killed 17 people, including eight children. A study by BreakThrough News found that many security measures in the building were dysfunctional or unreliable, including fire alarms and self-closing fire safety doors to limit the spread of a fire. On Monday, the city agreed to pay $ 2 million in compensation to the families of the victims.

According to New York officials, a massive explosion in The Bronx on Tuesday destroyed a house, killing one person and injuring eight others. A few days earlier, a fire in the same neighborhood killed 17 and injured dozens of others.

The blast occurred near noon in a three-story townhouse in the Longwood neighborhood. It triggered a two-alarm fire that destroyed the house and damaged several others around it.

The explosion was reportedly due to a gas leak.

“Our hearts go out to the family members for the loss of human life,” New York Major Eric Adams said at a news conference Tuesday. New York Fire Chief John Hodgens added that the building next to the collapsed building had been badly damaged and also needed to be demolished.

More than 100 fire and EMS crew members responded to the fire, according to local media.

Eight injuries have been reported by local officials, four of whom are residents and five are New York police officers treated for smoke inhalation. A 77-year-old woman was pronounced dead at a local hospital and two other women aged 82 and 68 were also treated but were reported stable.

The blast was about five miles from where a January 9 fire caused by a faulty space heater killed 17 people, including eight children. A study of Breakthrough news found that many security measures in the building were dysfunctional or unreliable, including fire alarms and self-closing fire safety doors to limit the spread of a fire. On Monday, the city agreed to pay $ 2 million in compensation to the families of the victims.
