Victims of Bronx fire seek refuge for Thanksgiving

THE BRONX - A recent fire on Rogers Place left more than 20 people homeless just days before the Thanksgiving holiday.

Residents say they feel lucky that no one was seriously injured in the fire.

Now, victims of the fire say they are just trying to pick up the pieces and find a place to spend the holiday.
