BROOKLYN HOUSE TRAGEDY

BROOKLYN, NY

7 Fatalities

A horrific fire in a private dwelling that claimed the lives of seven children. Shortly after midnight and while the family was sleeping, a fire on the first floor raced up the stairs where the family was sleeping.  The seven siblings ranging in ages 5 to 16 were survived by their mother and their 14-year-old sister, who were both hospitalized in critical condition.  An unthinkable tragedy that all New Yorkers felt the pain over.  T.J. Russo Consultants was retained on behalf of the family’s insurance company to investigate the origin, cause and responsibility for the incident.
