Residents leap from window to escape Mount Kisco fire
Thick smoke and shooting flames sent six people to the hospital this morning as a fast-moving fire engulfed their Mount Kisco home.
Investigators say flames broke out at around 6:30 a.m. at 90 Lexington Ave. in the first-floor living room. Fire officials say some residents were forced to jump from a second-story window to escape.
The victims, including some teenagers, were taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation, burns and injuries sustained when they jumped to safety. Investigators say none of their injuries are life threatening.
Fire officials say they believe the electrical system is likely to blame. The Red Cross is now helping the displaced residents find a temporary place to stay.
