EDENWALD, Bronx (WABC) – A woman is in critical condition but is expected to survive thanks to heroic firefighters who pulled her from a burning apartment at a Bronx high-rise early Wednesday.

The flames broke out on the 13th floor of a 14-story building in the Edenwald Houses just before 3 a.m.

The FDNY says firefighters from Ladder 51 forced open the door to the fire apartment and were met with zero visibility, high heat and a heavy clutter condition. MORE
