A fast spreading three alarm fire that engulfed a multi-family home on Madison Avenue Sunday night has claimed two lives.
Fire authorities say the fire may have started on the second floor, which is where two women who died had apparently been living.
Residents on the third floor interviewed by authorities said they heard an explosion that was followed swiftly by massive flames and thick smoke.
They told officials they felt lucky to escape and that it was a split second of time that was the difference between life and death for them.
