Two Wednesday Fires in Rockland County

Around 5:00 on Wednesday night firefighters responded to a house fire in Haverstraw. According to officials the flames had started on a mattress on the second floor of the multi-family home and took about twenty minutes for volunteers to put out completely. The fire, which destroyed the apartment building, displaced fifteen residents, though no one was reported injured, and the Redcross will be assisting the thirteen adults and two children. Investigators are looking into the possibility that a candle may have sparked the flames, though arson investigators were also inspecting the scene. Also on Wednesday night firefighters in Nanuet responded to a fire at an auto shop. Officials stated that the small amount of flames started by a fault in equipment within the garage and they were able to be put out quickly.
