YONKERS - Seven stores in Yonkers are now shut down after a fast-moving fire last night.

Fire officials say flames ignited around 6:30 p.m. yesterday in the basement of a shop on Caryl Avenue. They say the fire quickly spread to the row of stores on the block.

Out of the seven stores, five of them were open for business at the time of the fire. No customers or workers were reported injured.

It took about 60 firefighters almost two hours to put out the blaze. Two firefighters suffered minor injuries.
