Neighbors: Somers family was new to fire-ravaged home

Investigators say that flames could be seen on the first floor of the home at 13 Greenlawn Road when firefighters arrived on the scene.

Some 75 firefighters had to be called in for the approximately 40-minute rescue effort, and were successful in containing the flames to the basement and first floor of the home. Neighbors say that the family who lived there had just moved in recently, and had completed some major renovations on the home not long ago.
