NEW YORK — More than a dozen New York police officers were hurt in an overnight blaze in the city's Bronx borough, authorities said early Wednesday.
WPIX reported that two residents "sustained minor injuries" in the blaze.
In a tweet, police Chief of the Department Terence Monahan praised the officers who rushed into the apartment building.
"Thankfully, nobody was seriously injured," Monahan said. "It's courageous acts like this that earn our officers the name -- NY's Finest."
Investigators are still trying to determine what caused the fire.
