Fire causes roof to cave in at Yonkers auto body shop
Firefighters spent the afternoon battling a fire at an auto body shop in downtown Yonkers.
Fire officials say the fire erupted at 34 Poplar St. just after 1:30 p.m. They say the intense flames caused the roof to cave in.
According to firefighters, the fire could have easily spread to nearby homes if they hadn't arrived on the scene quickly. They say there were also flammable oils and other materials in the garage that could have made the flames worse.
No one was in the garage at the time and no injuries were reported. Officials say the cause is still under investigation.
