THE BRONX - One child and two adults are dead after flames engulfed a three-family home in Soundview on New Year's Eve.
More than 125 firefighters battled the three-alarm fire on Beach Avenue near Lafayette Avenue just before 6 a.m.
The FDNY has not released details about the victims, but neighbors say they are a boy and his grandparents. At least three other people and five firefighters also suffered injuries.
The cause of the fire has not yet been determined, but officials are calling it suspicious. Two Red Cross teams are helping those who have been displaced.
Officials say the other child and two adults who were injured are being treated at Jacobi Medical Center.
