Father attempts to kill family in Bronx apartment fire, FDNY says

A father apparently set the couch of his fifth-floor Bronx apartment on fire after attacking his family with hot oil, officials said.

The FDNY received a call about the fire around 10:35 a.m. Friday and responded to the scene at 730 East 236th Street in the Wakefield section.

Police said the 41-year-old suspect got into a verbal dispute with his 19-year-old daughter and 18-year-old son and threw hot oil onto both of them. His daughter was holding her two-month-old child at the time, and all three sustained burns.
