Loss of hot water irks Mount Vernon residents

Tenants of a North Third Avenue building in Mount Vernon say they've been without gas or hot water for days.

Con Ed says the problem stems from a gas pipe in the building that ruptured Saturday. The utility was forced to shut off the gas and water lines to begin repairing the pipe.

Residents say they don't anticipate the gas pipe being fixed anytime soon.
