PARKCHESTER, Bronx (WABC) – Two people died and five others were injured when a fire tore through an apartment in the Bronx early Saturday.

The flames broke out around 1 a.m. in the apartment on the 10th floor of a high-rise building on East Tremont Avenue in the Parkchester section.

Officials describe the apartment as a hoarder situation, so much so that they didn’t immediately know there was a second fatality.

After the fire, which was contained to one apartment, was extinguished, responding officers found a 75-year-old man unresponsive and unconscious within the residence.
