Help the Families and Loved Ones Affected by the Bronx Apartment Fire

A malfunctioning space heater killed 17 people, including 8 children, in a 120-unit Bronx apartment building last Sunday.

New York communities are grieving after an apartment fire raged through a 19-story apartment building on Sunday. Seventeen people have died in the fire and nearly 60 people were injured, 35 of which are in critical condition and still fighting for their lives.

Victims of the fire also reported that smoke detectors went off frequently, up to 5 or 6 times a day, misleading many into believing there was no threat until it was too late. The fire is believed to have been the result of a defective space heater that residents were forced to keep on to stay warm. Making matters worse, the 1970’s apartment building did not have any safety fire escape routes.

Several organizations have developed programs to help those who have been affected by this tragic event. Those who have been displaced by the fire, suffered injuries, and/or lost loved ones can reach out to the following organizations for monetary assistance, survival kits, and additional support.

Organizations Include:

Mayor Eric Adams and the City of New York are also collecting donations to provide victims with emergency relief supplies.

Goidel & Siegel are proud to be a part of a community of people who come together when tragedy strikes. They want to remind residents of a few important safety tips that may help save lives in the event of a fire:

  • Stay low to avoid smoke inhalation
  • Stop, drop, and roll
  • Close doors when escaping
  • Do not go back inside the building
  • Call 911

It is also important to implement a fire safety plan in preparation of the unfortunate event of a fire. They encourage families to develop a plan to get out, including at least two ways out of every room.
