The Haverstraw Fire Department responded to a structure fire on Broad Street early on the morning of December 19, 2016. Upon arrival, several people were evacuating the building via fire escapes. The building housed several stores at street level, and apartments on the second and third floors. The fire was contained to one apartment, but smoke and water damage displaced around 30 people from several families. Three people were hospitalized with smoke inhalation. Mutual aid was received from several neighboring departments.
