An arrest has been made in connection with a fatal two-alarm fire earlier in September in the Bronx.

The University Avenue blaze forced desperate residents onto the fire escape as they waited to be rescued.

Wendy Walston, 46, was charged with arson and manslaughter. The blaze killed her boyfriend and a 4-year-old child.

Residents are angry because little cleanup has been done, even though they have called 311. They say doors to the building are broken, so people come in and out late at night and in the morning, causing them to feel usafe.
