House Destroyed by Grill Fire in New City

New City firefighters reported to an address on Snowdrop Drive on Tuesday to find a home in flames due to a grill fire. Officials stated that when volunteers arrived just after noon, the entire deck and back of the house were engulfed in heavy flames, taking the department with assistance from Congers, Hillcrest, and Nanuet about an hour and a half to put out completely. The house was completely destroyed in the blaze and investigators are determining if the grill’s connection to a gas line attached to the house helped spark and spread the fire. Three people were home at the time and all made it out without injuries.
