Tenants return home after Glen Cove apartment fire

GLEN COVE - Officials say dozens of tenants who were forced out this morning because of a fire are back home in Glen Cove.

Cops say 11 people were injured in the apartment fire that started around 12:30 a.m.

A resident of the apartments on Glen Street told News 12 Long Island that he saw thick black smoke coming from his stove and got his family out.

Fire officials say the fire spread to two other apartments, forcing more than 50 residents to evacuate.

A total of 11 people were rushed to the hospital for smoke inhalation, including one firefighter who was suffering from heat exhaustion. Officials say a total of six apartments were damaged by the fire. In addition, four stores, including Juniors Deli, located underneath the apartments also had fire damage.

The cause of the fire does not seem suspicious.
