"#FDNY members continue to operate on scene this morning of a 7-alarm fire, 1547 Commonwealth Ave #Bronx".

Most of the injuries are believed to be non-life-threatening.

At least eight people were injured in a fire raging through a Bronx building, the New York Fire Department said on Tuesday.

The massive fire comes less than a week after another fire, caused by a child playing with a stove, killed at least 12 people, including several children.

Last Thursday, a fire at a residential building near Bronx Zoo killed 12 people.

The flames broke out after 5am (9pm AEDT) in the Van Nest area of the Bronx in a building that houses a furniture store on the first floor and apartments on the upper floors.

One resident told NBC news he fled the building, barefoot and barechested, with his three children into freezing temperatures that dipped as low as minus 10 degrees Celsius.

"They've all been transported, and they will all be ok, thankfully", he said, noting there were at least nine children among the injured. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called it the worst fire tragedy the city has seen in a quarter century.
