Harlem Fire: 5-year-old girl and woman killed, father seriously injured in apartment fire at New York’s Jackie Robinson House

Harlem, Manhattan (WABC) — A 5-year-old girl and a 36-year-old woman have died and the girls’ father has been seriously injured in a fire in a Harlem apartment.

At about 2:45 a.m. Tuesday, the girl, her father, and his father’s girlfriend were trapped in Apt 6M when flames broke out at the Jackie Robinson House on East 129th Street.

The father and daughter were taken to Harlem Hospital, where the girl was pronounced dead.

The girlfriend was taken to Lincoln Hospital, where she was injured.

The father of a man in his 40s is in critical condition.

Three dogs also died in the fire.

A firefighter and a resident were slightly injured.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but firefighters encountered a burning e-bike.

It wasn’t immediately clear if that was the cause of the fire, but NYCHA has been working to ban e-bikes in the building for this very reason.

This bulletin will be updated.
