Chestnut Ridge House Fire

Firefighters from the South Spring Valley, Pearl River, Orangeburg, Tallman, Monsey, and Hillcrest departments responded to a call Monday morning to find a house engulfed in flames. Officials reported that just before 8:00 AM reports came in that the refrigerator in the Chestnut Ridge home on Manis Avenue had caught fire and the flames quickly spread to the rest of the house, breaking through the roof of the building. All those in the home were able to get out without injury, though the home was lost to the damage. Firefighters spent a long time battling the flames, due to the freezing temperatures throughout the morning, which often cause problems with hydrants. Investigators are continuing to look into the officials cause of the fire.
