PEEKSKILL - Investigators are searching for what may have sparked a three-alarm blaze that tore through the Peekskill Central Market early Sunday morning.

Around 75 firefighters responded to the fire that broke out at around 2 a.m. Sunday. Officials say it started in a dumpster outside the market and quickly spread to the second floor.

Fire Chief Robert Fiorio says it took about an hour to quell the flames.

No one was inside the market due to renovations being made. Fioro says these renovations posed a challenge to firefighters, since much of the building was boarded up.

The fire is still under investigation, but is believed to be accidental.
