Bronx family homeless after 2-alarm fire destroys apartment
A Bronx family is homeless after a fire tore through three apartments Monday morning.
The two-alarm fire started on the second floor of 2350 Beaumont Ave. around 6 a.m. and spread upward into additional floors above.
Officials say a mattress may have caught fire initially sparking the blaze.
At least three people suffered minor injuries associated with smoke inhalation and were transported to Saint Barnabas Hospital in stable condition.
The fire took about an hour and a half to put out, according to officials.
At least one family was displaced in the fire and is being assisted by the American Red Cross.
