The Yonkers Fire Department was alerted for a possible building fire on Yonkers Avenue. Arriving companies had fire showing from a single-story taxpayer. Crews requested multiple alarms throughout the incident due to a heavy fire load which eventually destroyed the building, as well as the connecting businesses. Crews moved to an exterior attack and set up ladder pipes for the duration of the incident. Due to multiple collapses throughout the incident the next morning the building was demolished.
