FDNY IDs cause of 240 E. Houston blaze

According to multiple published reports (the Times, DNAinfo, NY1) Thursday's fire was caused by the "unapproved use of electrical wiring," according to a fire official, who explained that residents had extended various cords to the roof, and stretched wires beneath roofing materials.

And this is the shot the FDNY released:

Twenty-eight firefighters and civilians were injured in the fire, the Times reported.
