The Yonkers Fire Department was dispatched to Bruce Avenue for a fire. First-arriving companies had heavy fire showing on the third floor of a five-story multiple dwelling. Fire quickly spread through floors four and five and into the cockloft. A fifth alarm was transmitted bringing every available Yonkers unit to the scene. Approximately 50 minutes into the fire, crews pulled a victim out who didn’t survive. Arson crews were called to the scene to assist in the fire investigation.
