We awoke this morning to the news of a massive 7 alarm blaze in Parkchester with over 200 firefighters responding at the scene.
Fortunately, no deaths have been reported but 16 people are injured including 9 children just days after a other massive fire killed 12 people in Belmont in the biggest fire related tragedy in 27 years in NYC history.
The fire began around 5:30AM in a furniture on the ground floor and quickly spread to the residential apartments above.
As a result of this blaze, 22 residents have been displaced and were currently inside a city bus seeking shelter from the cold.
The injuries sustained were considered non life-threatening.
