FOX News reports that Mayor Eric Adams said the firefighters’ compressed air tanks were empty but “they still pushed through the smoke.”

“You can’t do this if you don’t feel attached to this city and this community,” Adams said. “I really want to thank them for putting the lives on the line to save lives.”

FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro said the fire spanned the second and third floors of the 19-story building. The door of the apartment was left open, allowing smoke to quickly spread throughout the building.

“The smoke conditions in this building are unprecedented,” Nigro added, calling it one of the worst blazes in the city in recent memory.

Adams said many of the building’s residents were immigrants from the West African nation of Gambia and were Muslim. Gov. Hochul said her administration would establish a victim’s compensation to help with housing and burial funds.

The fire is not believed to be suspicious in origin, but the cause is under investigation.

So tragic.
