150 Residents Displaced By Massive Yonkers Apartment Building Fire

 Wednesday, March 13, 2019


Firefighters battled a massive fire that raged for several hours Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning at an apartment building in Yonkers. The four-alarm fire broke out around 6:15 p.m. on the top floor of a six-story building on Parkview Avenue near Garrett Place. The building borders Bronxville. More than 100 firefighters from several city agencies battled the blaze, which continued to burn out of control. The top floor collapsed as the fire ravaged the building’s roof. Rescuers pounded through apartment doors to search for residents before officials pulled firefighters from the structure, opting instead to fight it from outside. "It’s quite a shock to come home to it," resident Arthur Weisenseel said. "This is a dramatic scene, to say the least."
