Fire in Blauvelt

Around 6:20 Sunday night firefighters from six departments fought the snow to respond to a fire on Pine Glen Drive in Blauvelt. When they arrived volunteers found a male resident outside and two women in their 70’s and 80’s leaving the house after a neighbor called police when they saw the flames coming from the residence. According to officials the two women were attempting to put the flames out themselves, instead of calling 911, and that both of them suffered minor burns, but did not need hospitalization. The house was severely damaged and investigators reported that the fire was caused by a candle that lit a curtain and spread through the attic.
