Spring Valley House Fire Uncovered Violations

According to Rockland County Emergency officials, firefighters responded to a house fire in Spring Valley on Tuesday, where they uncovered multiple illegal apartments. Around 9:50 in the morning Spring Valley, Monsey, and Hillcrest departments arrived at the address on Murin Street to find the basement of a two-family home in flames. According to Rockland Coordinator of Fire and Emergency Services, Gordon Wren, the basement was violating several codes including having just one set of stairs out and a lack of smoke detectors, as well as being illegally altered in separate apartments. The fire remained in the basement and volunteers had it under control within thirty minutes and the Red Cross was assisting a family of two adults and two children. Investigations are underway into the fire, which officials stated does not appear to be suspicious.
