The new mayor of New York, a former African-American policeman who took office on January 1, spoke of a real tragedy, and not just for the Bronx and the city.

In images circulating on social networks, huge flames and thick black smoke billowed in the morning from a window of a multi-story building in the Bronx, a huge borough in upstate New York.

The firefighters had first announced an assessment of about thirty injured.

Last Wednesday, a terrible fire in an apartment building in Philadelphia killed 12 people, including eight children.

New York, a megalopolis of nine million inhabitants, is suffering in various neighborhoods from a huge housing crisis with buildings that are sometimes dilapidated and poorly maintained.
