Fire in Elmsford leaves homeowner injured
An elderly Elmsford man is recovering in the hospital after a fire ripped through his home today.
The fire broke out around noon at 34 North Perkins Ave. Firefighters were able to contain the fire, but discovered the man's dog dead inside the home.

Neighbors say they heard smoke detectors going off, but think the man was trying to save his dog before leaving the home.
