Hair salon destroyed by flames
A popular hair salon in Orange County was destroyed after its building went up in flames Wednesday night.
Flames broke out at the Metamorphosis Salon at 29 East Main St. in Washingtonville at around midnight.
Owner Margarita Yarce, who lives above the salon, discovered the flames and was able to escape safely. The fire got into the walls and by the time firefighters arrived, the upper level was fully engulfed.
Yarce's ex-husband says Yarce put her heart and soul in the business for almost 20 years. "It's tough. She built this place from the bottom up. It's devastating," says Vincent Dellova.
Yarce says she hopes to rebuild, but will also look into a temporary home for the business.
