Mr. Adams, 61, spoke to reporters outside the charred building after visiting the “horrific” fire scene.

The mayor reassured residents that an investigation into the cause of the fire would be launched, and he praised firefighters for entering the building despite having no oxygen left in their tanks.

The tragedy was a “horrific, painful moment” for the city, he said.

Firefighters “found victims on every floor in stairwells and were taking them out in respiratory and cardiac arrest,” according to Mr Nigro, who was quoted in the Guardian.

“That’s unheard of in our city,” he continued.

We started saturating towels and the bottom of the door with water.

“It was all a whirlwind.”

“We were at a loss for what to do.

We saw all the dead bodies they were taking with the blankets as we looked out the windows.”

The building has suffered significant damage as a result of the fire, with windows on multiple floors being broken.

The cause of the fire is currently being investigated, but it is not suspected to be suspicious.
