Video Update: First Look Inside Bronx Building After Deadly Fire

A FDNY video offered a glimpse of the devastation inside the fire-ravaged Bronx building where 12 people died: Charred doors, scorched walls and crumbling ceilings.

The grim aftermath of the five-alarm blaze was chronicled in a 96-second video made public Friday afternoon, moving from the missing windows on its front facade to the post-fire refuse dumped in its courtyard.

Four Jamaicans were killed in the blaze. Dead are Karen Stewart-Francis, 37; her children Kylie Francis, 2, and Kelly Francis, 7; and Shawntay Young, 19, their cousin.
