Fire forces seniors from Croton housing complex
Fire officials are investigating an overnight fire at a senior housing complex in Croton.
The blaze broke out just before 1 a.m. at the Springdale Apartments on Albany Post Road.
Investigators say the electrical fire started in a combination laundry and utility room. The fire then quickly filled the hallways with smoke.
Apartment personnel with pass keys began to get people out of their apartments and then the residents themselves helped each other outside.
Luckily the apartments themselves did not go up in flames. But the utility room was heavily damaged.
The Red Cross was on scene to help overnight. They say most of the residents have found other places to stay.
