No foul play suspected in Spring Valley yeshiva fire

Fire officials say preliminary results show there is nothing suspicious about a fire that destroyed a dormitory on Thursday morning at Rockland County Yeshiva.



Firefighters say it took over 80 firefighters to put out the blaze on East Funston Avenue in Spring Valley and that students were fortunate to get out in time.



It took just over an hour for crews from five fire departments to get the blaze under control.



Officials say the building is likely a total loss.



One firefighter was reportedly treated for minor burns.



Officials say there are signs the fire started on the outside back porch of the dorm.
