A suspicious fire destroyed a two-story private dwelling on the Yonker’s North End. After receiving numerous calls, some from blocks away, the first-due engine company arrived to a fully-involved house and low water pressure. Neighbors reported hearing explosions and then seeing the home involved in flames. A second alarm was requested and long stretches for water were required. Seventeen companies and 74 firefighters worked for four hours to extinguish the fire.
