More than 30 left homeless after Yonkers apartment fire

Yonkers residents began the process of fixing their homes after a fire severely damaged their apartment building.

The blaze broke out shortly after 3 a.m. at Angelo's Pizza on 986 McLean Avenue in Yonkers. More than 30 people are left homeless as crews start on repairs. Officials say the fire started in the pizzeria and worked its way up to the top floors of the building. Firefighters had to rip open the walls in several apartments to reach the flames, but helped everyone escape safely.

A temporary shelter has been set up at St. Barnabas Elementary School across the street. Most of the displaced victims are staying with family until they can get back into their homes.
