Four-alarm fire causes vacant three-story building to collapse in Williamsbridge
A four-alarm fire Wednesday night caused a vacant three-story building in Williamsbridge to collapse.
The fire at 802 East 216th Street quickly spread to a home next door, leaving several people homeless. Residents say they are grateful to have escaped unharmed. Fire officials say two firefighters were hospitalized with minor injuries.
The Red Cross placed the two families who lost their homes in hotels until they can make further arrangements.
