Safe from a Terrible Fire

It has been about 10 weeks since a fast-moving fire consumed the Niakale Magassa's narrow brick house at 1022 Woodycrest Avenue in the High Bridge neighborhood on March 7.

Most of the Magassa family has now resettled into a new home on Walton Avenue, a spacious apartment about one mile from the scene of the blaze, one of the deadliest residential fires in New York City history.

I think they are happy.
