New York City mayor Eric Adams was horrified at the death of 19 people including nine children in a huge fire that hit a Bronx building Sunday morning.

Adams who went to the area of the five-alarm blaze that broke out at 333 E 181st St, a 19-story building in the West Bronx around 10:54 am described the incident as one of the worst in modern NYC.

“This is a horrific, horrific, painful moment for the City of New York, and the impact of this fire is going to really bring a level of just pain and despair in our city,” Adams said.

“This is going to be one of the worst fires we have witnessed during modern times in the City of New York,” Adams added.

Based on the initial fire investigation, the fire in a bedroom of a duplex apartment spanning the second and third floors of the 19-story tower in Fordham Heights was sparked by a malfunctioning electric space heater.
