People Dead - Including Children - Following Fire in Queens Village

The blaze, which started at about 2:30 p.m., spread through the two-story home on 208th Street and was brought under control about two hours later.

"It's a very hard moment for people on this block, to see a family literally destroyed before their very eyes", de Blasio said, surrounded by elected officials and fire officials.

Stark video shows first responders carrying a limp child from the wreckage. Witnesses heard loud booms before the blaze broke out. Mayor Bill de Blasio says there are still many 'unanswered questions.' Commissioner Nigro says that fire marshals will work to determine the cause. They struggled to reach some of the victims who were as high up as the attic, a "super-human" task for firefighters to reach people in a home engulfed by such a massive fire, Nigro said.

The mayor and the head of the FDNY were en route to the scene of the fire Sunday, and said they would give an update to the public around 5:45 p.m. ABC7 is planning on streaming their comments live here. "I was just praying for them". "Get the kids out!'" Johnson said.
