At least 16 people were injured Tuesday when fire raced through a Bronx apartment building, just five days after a blaze at another building in the Bronx left 12 people dead. The store is on the ground floor with apartments above.
The fire started inside of 1547 Commonwealth Ave. near E. Tremont Avenue just after 5:30 a.m., fire officials say. Video from the scene showed flames and smoke pouring from the building.
FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro said firefighters arrived in less than 4 minutes and helped rescue tenants.
Despite the severity of the blaze, he assured the public that none of the injuries were life threatening.
The Fire quickly spread through the four-story building in the Bronx Tuesday morning.

Officials say over 200 firefighters have responded to the blaze at a four-storey building near the Bronx Zoo in Van Nest.
The displaced residents were placed on an nearby bus so they could keep warm while firefighters continued battling the inferno.
"Praying for a swift recovery for all those injured", Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted.
All of the residents of the building were believed to have been evacuated as well.
