LOCAL NEWS does not get anymore LOCAL than this!
Date: 2/26/17
Time: 3:30am
Where: 28 South 13th Ave – Mt Vernon

Around 3:30 am this morning Mt. Vernon FD received calls for a fire at 28 South 13th Avenue.

Upon arrival they were met with heavy fire from the 2nd floor extending to the third floor so a 2nd alarm was almost immediately called.

Mutual aid from New Rochelle was called in to help out.

They were told by family members who had already gotten out that a mother and her infant child were still in the 2nd floor.

It took firefighters almost an hour to get the fire on the 2nd floor out enough to do a primary search which is when they found the 2 DOA on the 2nd floor.

This was a single-family wood frame home with 11 people living inside, 3 generations of the same family.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
