Massive Fire At Yonkers Apartment Building Leaves At Least 130 Families Displaced

YONKERS, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – More than 100 families were displaced when a massive fire ripped through a Yonkers apartment building overnight.

The flames broke out shortly before 6 p.m. Tuesday on the upper level of a six-story building on Parkview Ave near Pondfiled Road. Officials said the fire spread to the cockloft and grew from there.

“It started at this end. As you can see, it swung all around the building and it’s completely engulfed,” Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano said Tuesday night. “You look at the building like that, you know that building has got to be well over 75 years old. There’s lots of place for fire to hide in buildings like that, and when they get started they are very stubborn, they don’t want to stop.”
