Fire officials say 28 firefighters and two civilians suffered minor injuries in an overnight fire at a six-story building in the Bronx.
The six-alarm fire broke out shortly after midnight Wednesday at 975 Walton Ave. near Yankee Stadium.
More than 200 firefighters battled the blaze during a hot and humid night.
The blaze broke out on the upper floors of the Walton Avenue building at around 12:18 a.m.
The fire started on the sixth floor, spreading from apartment to apartment in the rear of the building. The roof quickly collapsed, forcing firefighters to scramble out of danger.
Heavy flames soon shot out the roof of the building, just two blocks from Yankee Stadium. Firefighters said a new roof was recently put down, and the fire spread on the rubbery substance.
