YONKERS RESIDENTS FLEE FOR THEIR LIVES AS SMOKY FIRE RAGES
They were in danger of losing an entire city block crowded with stores and apartment buildings. Yonkers fire fighters mounting an aggressive attack as they arrived at a four-alarm blaze in a dollar store. Working feverishly to keep the smoky blaze confined to the store. People in the two adjacent apartment buildings fled with just the clothes they were wearing - no time to even grab outerwear. The area filled with smoke - but no civilians were hurt. A few firefighters suffering minor injuries.
