Ossining store destroyed in a fire last year finally reopens

After a long 18 months, the Westchester Tobacco and Stationary store reopened.

The stores owners, Tracy Frank and her brother Henry, were full of smiles Monday as they opened their doors once again. The mayor of the Village of Ossining joined in the celebration by cutting the ribbon to mark the store's rebirth. Last year, the store along with several apartments was destroyed in a blaze.

Tracy says it's great to be back open and have people notice some of the changes made to the breakfast and lunch menus.

Ossining's business district has been plagued by fires, which has led to a crackdown on fire code violations within the village.
