Firefighters put out apartment fire in Mamaroneck
A fire broke out inside an apartment in downtown Mamaroneck this morning, spreading upstairs and trapping at least one resident. Flames ignited at 231 Mamaroneck Ave. at around 9 a.m. When firefighters arrived on the scene, they rescued a man who was getting ready to jump from a third-story window. Firefighters kept the flames from spreading to a first-floor gift shop and to next-door buildings. One person was treated for smoke inhalation. Neighbors say one of the tenants lost her pets in the fire. The cause of the fire is being investigated.
