19 are dead, including 9 kids, after one of the worst New York City fires in a generation.

An electric space heater is being blamed for sparking the horrific high-rise Bronx apartment fire, city officials confirmed Sunday evening.

The fire originated in a duplex on the second and third floors of the building but never extended past the unit and the hallway nearest the apartment, FDNY Commissioner Dan Nigro revealed. Smoke generated from the duplex blaze was able to filter out through an open door and spread throughout the structure.

Marc Santia, Adam Harding and Ida Siegal report.
