A massive fire in an apartment building in the Bronx killed a four-year-old and injured more than 60 others.

The five-alarm fire broke out shortly before 11 a.m. on the third floor of a 19-story building at 333 East 181st St in Fordham Heights.

The New York Post reported that a four-year-old boy died in the fire.

We didn’t know what to do. We looked out the windows and saw all the bodies that were carrying blankets,” Crystal Diaz, who lives on the fifth floor, told the newspaper.

Diaz’s 13-year-old niece, Alani, reportedly saw “mothers faint upon seeing their children die.”

The fire at the Twin Parks North West complex developed rapidly.

More than 200 firefighters across the town responded to the scene. The FDNY said the icy conditions made it difficult for firefighters to put out the flames.

The MILF said at least 54 people were wounded.

Officials said 19 were treated at the scene and 35 others were taken to nearby hospitals, many of them in serious condition.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams and Fire Commissioner Dan Nigro are on site to assess the situation.

Negro said during a press conference that a door to the apartment had been opened, spreading the fire.

“The smoke conditions in this building are unprecedented,” Nigro said.

Diaz said she fled her apartment when she learned of the fire.

I was drinking coffee in the living room and I started to smell smoke. We started putting water on the towels and down the door. It was all crazy,” Diaz told the newspaper.

We saw a bunch of corpses coming out. His niece added, that people from my childhood were dying.
