Bronx, Dec 29 (IBNS): At least 12 people have been killed as a deadly fire engulfed a century old building in the New York's Bronx borough, reports said.

The incident took place on Thursday night and has been termed as the deadliest fire to hit New York in more than 25 years.

Condoling the loss, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said, "Tonight in the Bronx we've seen the worst fire tragedy in at least a quarter of a century. It is an unspeakable tragedy, and families have been torn apart."

"I want to offer my prayers to all the families who have lost their loved ones this evening or who are struggling. I ask all New Yorkers to keep them in your prayers, too," he said.

According to Blasio, one among the deceased is an infant, while four people are said to be critical.

He further added that the fire has been put out completely and the rescue team have evacuated 12 people safely.
