Authorities say at least four people were injured in a fire at home in the Wakefield section of the Bronx.

The landlord told News 12 a family of six lives on the top floor. She says one of the children lit a candle and a mattress caught on fire on the second floor.
The FDNY says four four people were taken to NYC Health + Hospitals/Jacobi.
The homeowner says it was the four kids that went to the hospital, but they expected to be OK.
