BRONX NEWS: Bronx blaze survivors return in search of cherished possessions


More than a dozen residents who lost their homes in the Bronx blaze that killed 12 people returned to the tragic scene Sunday, hoping to recover cherished possessions from charred apartments.


One couple came in search of a pet turtle. Another resident was on the hunt for citizenship documents. One man simply wanted to find his car keys.


“It’s a mess, my apartment, everything’s wet. I won’t get it back,” said Thierno Diallo, 59, who lived on the ground floor of the Belmont building.


Diallo, whose four kids and wife live in Ghana, works as a security guard. He emerged with a roller suitcase and a duffle bag after spending 20 minutes in his apartment.

Bronx fire-starter’s mom didn’t alert neighbors to blaze: tenant


He said he managed to recover his work uniform. But he had been hoping to find documents connected to his citizenship application.


Despite his losses, he was relieved he survived the five-alarm fire.


“Really thank God I’m alive,” he said. “People are dead.”


The residents — who have been living in hotels in Long Island City and Brooklyn since the fire Thursday night — were told they could sift through their homes Sunday morning.

After the fire


However, only residents who lived on the ground floor and the basement were actually allowed to enter their homes. Officials said the higher-floor units were not safe.


Marshall Igbinedion, who has been staying in a Red Lion hotel in Brooklyn since the fire, returned wearing the khaki cargo pants he’s had on since Thursday.


Officials turned him away because his second-floor unit was too dangerous to enter.


“I lost everything,” said Igbinedion, who escaped the fire through a window. “I need my car keys. My papers.”


He stared at the building for a while before walking to a nearby church that had been collecting clothes for victims to see if any donations fit him.


Cynthia Bryant said she and her husband came to find their turtle. They left him behind in their second-floor flat when they crawled out a window to escape billowing smoke.


“Tuck, my turtle, is probably up there just swimming around,” she said.


Fernando Batiz, who lost his sister, Maria Batiz, and her infant granddaughter in the blaze, came to the building in search of an unopened Christmas present that Maria had intended to give to their mom.


The 56-year-old fire victim who lived on the third floor didn’t make it to a family get-together on Christmas because she had to work as a home-care attendant.


“She never got to give it to my mom,” he said. “She had so much work that she never had time to see my mother.”

BRONX NEWS: Residents recall miracles that allowed them to survive Bronx fire


One woman stood completely naked clutching the fire escape for dear life, enduring the frigid air over the searing heat inside her building.


Another who was barefoot crawled out a window, then screamed to a neighbor to throw her socks as she waited to be rescued.


One lucky tenant avoided certain death by stepping out to pay his rent a few hours before the blaze erupted.


The survivors of the Bronx fire that killed 12 people returned on New Year’s Eve to the rubble and ruin of the building they once called home.

Bronx fire-starter’s mom didn’t alert neighbors to blaze: tenant


They came to collect whatever belongings remained but also to recount the miracle of their escapes and to reckon with the loss of their longtime neighbors and friends.


“I’m just grateful I’m here. Grateful I was able to not be in the building because I don’t know what would have happened if I had been in my apartment,” Allen Cannon said.


Cannon, 37, lived on the fourth floor of Belmont building for four years. He was on his way home from work Thursday evening when the fire broke out.


He said he believed he would have died if he had been in his apartment. The first-floor apartment where the fire — the city’s deadliest in more than 25 years — started was in Cannon’s line of units.

Cannon said his next-door neighbor from Ghana, Solomon Donkor, and the man’s two children, Hanna Adoma Dankor and William Donkor, perished in the blaze.


When Cannon arrived at the building, he saw swarms of firefighters with ladders on the fourth floor.


“I look out at the side of the building at the fire escape, there would have been no way to escape,” he said.


Cynthia Bryant, 56, was in her second-floor apartment when she saw smoke. She made a split-second decision that likely saved her from doom.

After the fire


“When I saw the smoke, I almost reached for the door, but something kept saying, ‘No, don’t open the door,’” she recalled Sunday as she stood outside the gutted building at 2363 Prospect Ave.


She quickly called 911. Then, without stopping to put socks or shoes on, she got her husband and they hurried out a window.


“It took me two seconds to get to that fire escape,” said Bryant, who had lived in the building for 33 years.


The scene grew surreal as she waited for help.


“When I was on the fire escape, there was one woman completely naked on the fire escape,” she said. “I kept screaming, ‘Give her a coat.’”


Bryant also yelled to a neighbor who remained in his unit to throw her socks to keep her bare feet warm.


“I was screaming at him, ‘Give me some socks,’” she said. “And then he threw them at me and I got them.”


Bryant said she was a close friend of victim Maria Batiz, 58, who died clutching her 7-month-old granddaughter, Amora Batiz, in a bathtub.


Batiz lived in the apartment right below Bryant. Their two daughters grew up playing with one another.


“Every time I look at the TV, I just see those faces,” Bryant said. “You know how long I knew Maria? Forever.”


She said she keeps trying to figure out why her dear friend couldn’t escape.


“She must didn’t know how to get out,” she said. “I just can’t figure why she couldn’t get out. It just keeps going in my mind.”


Cannon said residents in the five-story, 26-unit building had a communal bond.


“It’s really eating me up because you help people, you walk down the stairs and see these people, say, ‘Hi, sister,’” Cannon, 37, said.


“So many good people from this building that I’ve known for years that I’ve lost.”


Michael Morgan, 36, said he survived the fire by a stroke of luck — he went to hand his 0 rent check to the property management company. He lived on the top floor of the building for six years.


Four members of the same family — Karen Stewart-Francis, 37; her daughters Kelesha, 7, and Kylie, 2; and her niece Shawntay Young, 19 — died in an apartment on his floor, he said.


“If I had been home, I would have been in the same predicament,” he said. “When I look out my window, her window’s right there. If they couldn’t make it to the fire escape, I wouldn’t have.”


Even though he wasn’t there, Morgan’s two four-legged friends were trapped in his apartment — his dog Sparkle and his cat Smokey.


“I wasn’t there but my pets were, so my main concern was to get my cat and dog out,” he said.


Both animals survived.


Morgan’s yorkie Sparkle barreled out of the apartment when responders knocked down its door. A firefighter scooped her up as she ran down the building’s steps, he said.


The pooch suffered smoke inhalation and was placed in an oxygen tank for a few days. Morgan and she are to be reunited on Tuesday.


Smokey fared much better, Morgan said, and was staying at a friend’s house until he could find permanent housing.


FDNY officials said a 3-year-old boy in a first-floor apartment started the inferno while playing with a kitchen stove.


Residents have accused the boy’s mom of bolting without alerting anyone. They say she also left her apartment door open, allowing the fast-moving blaze to whip through the building.


Bryant’s husband, Albert Bryant, said that the mom — who survived and watched the building go up in flames from across the street — had only lived there for about a year.


“She was relatively young, 22, trying to raise two kids,” Albert said. “She was a kid herself.”


Fernando Batiz, 54, who lost his sister, Maria Batiz, in the fire came to the building on Sunday carrying a photo of his dead sibling. He said he was angry at the mother of the 3-year-old boy but forgave her, knowing that she likely panicked.


“It would have been beautiful if they would have locked the door,” he said. “It would have saved lives. It would have been something much different.”
