Bronx fire: Remaining victims of deadly Bronx apartment fire identified; range in age from 2 to 50 – WABC-TV

TREMONT, Bronx (WABC) — Authorities have identified all 17 people killed in the deadly high rise apartment fire in the Tremont section of the Bronx.

The names of the last three victims were released by the NYPD early Wednesday morning. The youngest was 2 years old.

The victims’ identities were confirmed through what a source in the medical examiner’s office described to ABC News as “a deliberate but steady forensic process.”

The victims ranged in age from 2 to 50 years old. All died from accidental smoke inhalation.

Many of the victims came from the same families and had similar names. There were no IDs, like licenses, found on the bodies, the source said.
