Fire was shooting out the windows when firefighters arrived. They pulled a man out of the fire with injuries, including serious burns. He was in critical condition at the burn unit at New York Presbyterian Hospital.
His daughter, who was visiting, sustained less serious injuries and was taken to Methodist Hospital.
Firefighters had to battle the fire and the weather to put out the blaze. The fire appears to be caused by an overloaded power strip.
Six families were left homeless.
