Most of the victims faced smoke inhalation difficulties, Daniel Nigro, the city’s fire department commissioner, explained in a press conference hours earlier that afternoon.

According to the municipal Fire Department, approximately 200 elements attended Sunday’s fire at the Twin Park Apartments, a 19-story building on East 181st Street.
