A fast-moving fire engulfed an apartment building in the Bronx Monday morning — injuring multiple people, including a child and several firefighters, authorities said.

One of the firefighters and another adult resident were seriously injured and rushed to the hospital, according to the FDNY.

The fire was reported just before 5:30 a.m. at 225 McClellan Street and quickly spread throughout the six-story building, triggering multiple alarms. By 8:20 a.m., a seventh alarm was struck — with more than 220 firefighters battling the blaze, according to the FDNY.

Six in total — four firefighters, one adult and a child — were injured, but all of their injuries were considered non-life threatening, the FDNY said.
