New York Apartment Fire that Injured 11 Ruled Accidental

The FDNY says a four-alarm fire in Queens that left eleven people injured and dozens out of their homes Tuesday night was accidental, reports WABC.

Investigators say the cause of the fire was electrical, sparked by a failure of structural wiring.

Eight firefighters were among the injured in the fire that ripped through an apartment complex.

A dramatic rescue took place overnight, as firefighters rushed into a fourth-floor apartment to save an elderly couple huddled inside. The victims were pulled to safety.

Fortunately, many people used the fire escapes to get out of the burning building.
