I want to extend my heartfelt condolences to the family of the six victims who died tragically in a fire today at the Frederick E. Samuel Houses. I also offer my sympathies to the injured, to the residents of the building impacted by the trauma of this tragic loss of life and to the entire NYCHA community.
