Four-alarm fire rips through homes on Burhans Ave. in Yonkers

Four families are homeless Christmas night following an all-hands four alarm fire in Yonkers.

The blaze broke out in attached homes on Burhans Ave. just after four Sunday afternoon.

For many, they were just sitting down to Christmas dinner.

The Red Cross is helping any of the 20 who can not get back into their homes to find shelter.

The cause remains under investigation.
