More than 100 people gathered in the Bronx for a candlelight vigil for the victims of that apartment building fire that killed 17 people including 8 children.
The smoky fire also injured dozens and some remain hospitalized in critical condition. New York State Attorney General Letitia James attended the Tuesday night vigil, Jan. 11 – vowing to get to the bottom of this fire.
She told the crowd that there’s a lesson to be learned about the neglect of government and a lesson to be learned about why this continues to happen in this corner of the Bronx – which has a large population of people of color.
