THE BRONX - Tenants at 727 Adee Ave. in the Bronx were told to vacate immediately by building officials on Monday.

Department of Buildings inspectors found that the two-family home had 12 families living in it. They also found that there was no sprinkler system or fire escape.

The Red Cross set up tenants with hotel rooms for Monday and Tuesday night only.

The residents are waiting on their landlord to sign a Red Cross form verifying that they do in fact live in the building, but so far she has refused to sign the paperwork.

The tenants say they will be homeless if the landlord doesn't sign.
