UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS - Tenants in a University Heights apartment building say they spent the night in coats and blankets during Friday's storm because they have no heat.

News 12 The Bronx reported three weeks ago on the heat complaints in the building on West 182nd Street. Robert Lozada, who lives in the building, says that after the story aired, he got a letter from management requesting an apartment inspection. Lozada says he hopes this is the first step toward fixing the problem.

On Friday, a group of tenants held a rally outside the management's office to demand heat for their apartments.
