Where: 213 South 3rd Ave – Mt Vernon, NY

Around 10:45pm Mt. Vernon FD received calls for a structure fire at the above address.

Upon arrival they found heavy fire from the first and 2nd floors of a 3 story wood-frame home with homes to its left and right.

According to the Mayor of Mt. Vernon there were 10 people living in the original fire building but the 2 buildings on left and right were vacant.

The apartment building next to one of the fire buildings was evacuated of 45 residents as a precaution but officials expect to let them back in once fire operations have concluded.

There were no reported injuries to firefighters or civilians.

The cause of the fire is under investigation although the fire building evacuated which will make the investigation, obviously, quite difficult.

The evacuated residents were being put up in the community room at 20 East 3rd Street which is the Randy A. Daniels Towers at Grace Plaza. An apartment building around the corner.

Red Cross was on scene to assist the victims.
