FDNY: Menorah ignited Borough Park fire
Fire officials say a menorah filled with oil ignited a fire that critically injured a 3-year-old girl in Borough Park Wednesday night.
Officials say the fire broke out at 1866 47th St. at around 9:30 p.m. on the sixth day of Hanukkah after a lit Menorah toppled over.
The victim, Tzivia Friedman, has been admitted to a hospital burn center with life-threatening injuries. Friedman's two other siblings were also hurt, along with their elderly babysitter.
According to fire officials, the Friedmans did not have a smoke detector.
