Marcus Solis reports on a new fire safety campaign launched by the FDNY to 'close the door.'

NEW YORK (WABC) -- The horrific apartment building fire in the Bronx that killed 13 people is now becoming a teachable moment about fire safety.

Fire officials say the mother of the 3-year-old boy who started the fire didn't close the door to her burning apartment as she left, and that allowed the fire to spread -- fast.

So the FDNY is urging the public to close the door on their way out. Watch Marcus Solis' story in the player above.
