NEW YORK (AP) — New York police say three boys are dead after a fire broke out Friday night in a Bronx apartment building a few blocks from Yankee Stadium.
Police identified the three as 5-year-old Elijah Artis, 2-year-old Jeremiah Artis, and 4-month-old Michael Turner. They were pronounced dead at a hospital.
Police said a 25-year-old woman, 4-year-old girl and 4-month-old girl were treated for smoke inhalation and are in stable condition.
Fire officials said the fire started in a second-floor apartment of the six-story building. The Daily News reported witnesses seeing the children's mother leap from a window with a child in her arms.
The building's owner couldn't be reached for comment.
The building is about 10 blocks from the site of a 2007 fire that killed 10 people, including 8 children.
