Fire tears through Port Chester building
A fire tore through an apartment building in Port Chester earlier this week, forcing six families into the street.
Fire officials say the blaze at 236 Seymour Road started inside a grill on a third-floor concrete porch.
Residents say there are no smoke alarms in the six apartments where at least 40 people live. No one was hurt in the fire.
Port Chester officials are investigating the alleged absence of smoke detectors in the building and whether the apartments were overcrowded.
