A 20-year-old woman and 60-year-old man were killed early Thursday by a fire in their Bronx apartment building, officials said.


Two other women were left clinging to life by the blaze that broke out in the kitchen of a second-floor apartment on Harrison Ave. near W. Tremont Ave. in Morris Heights just before 5:30 a.m., authorities said.

Medics rushed the 20-year-old woman to BronxCare Health System but she could not be saved. The man was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he died.

A 62-year-old woman and a 63-year-old woman were hospitalized in critical condition.

Authorities said the fire was not believed to be suspicious.

Sixty firefighters responded to the blaze in the 5-story building. It was brought under control at 6:19 a.m., the FDNY said.
