Hundreds displaced, 21 hospitalized amid major blaze in New York

Over 20 people, including firefighters, were hospitalized as a blaze swept through a residential building in New York City, leaving about 240 people displaced, the Fire Department said.

The fire broke on the sixth floor of an apartment building comprising some 150 flats in the Queens area, and promptly spread to the rest of the structure, as the resident of the apartment where the fire kicked off left the door open while fleeing.

The blaze left 90 families comprising about 240 civilians displaced. In the meantime, more than 350 rescue workers, who were deployed to contain the fire, continue the operation.
