At least 15 people have been injured in a fire at an apartment building in the Bronx borough of New York, officials say, with reports of some fatalities.

The New York mayor’s office told Associated Press up to six people had been killed in the blaze at the five-storey building on Thursday evening.

More than 160 firefighters are attending the scene, the fire department said.

The building is located near Fordham University and the Bronx Zoo.

It is not known what caused the fire.

New York mayor Bill de Blasio is said to be heading to the site.
