Three people are dead—including a 6-year-old girl—after a fire tore through an East Elmhurst house Wednesday afternoon.

The FDNY were called out to 23-49 93rd St. at about 4:11 p.m. where they pulled five people from the house. Three people were taken to area hospitals and pronounced dead—a 76-year-old man, a 23-year-old man and a 6-year-old girl. Two other victims—a 10-month-old boy and a 35-year-old woman—are clinging to life.

The names of the deceased have been held pending family notification.

The FDNY Fire Marshall has not yet determined the cause of the fire and an investigation is ongoing.

This is what happens when you help illegals:
“You try to help people. Do not help anyone, as a Hispanic I try to help people. This boy asked me for help, he is in the hospital, he was going to leave, I received him in my house. And what happened then? He burned my house when I asked him to leave, “said Rafelina Morena, the owner of the house.

Interesting rant, but the FDNY Fire Marshall has not yet determined the cause of the fire and an investigation is ongoing.

If you read the article, you’d know that you’re completely wrong, BEFORE you embarrassed yourself. Why are the most vocal people always completely clueless?
