NEW YORK — A firefighter has been taken to a hospital with a minor injury after a Bronx building blaze.

WABC says the fire broke out on the first floor of a building in the Melrose neighborhood around 5:15 a.m. Thursday.

The building houses a business on the first floor and has two floors of vacant apartments above.

The cause of the fire was not immediately determined.

On Tuesday, a funeral was held for a firefighter killed at a Manhattan building being used as a movie set.
