A fast-moving fire in a Bronx apartment building killed a woman early Tuesday and left two people with critical injuries, including a 14-year-old boy, officials said.

Neesha Endusay-Wilson, 46, died in the blaze, which broke out about 1:10 a.m. in a building on Metropolitan Oval near Castle Hill Ave. in Parkchester.

A 45-year-old man and the teen were also caught in the blaze. All three were rushed to Jacobi Medical Center where Endusay-Wilson died.

The cause of the fire was accidental, stemming from a short in electrical wiring, FNDY investigators determined.
