Officials probe cause of Spring Valley fire
Cleanup continued this weekend in Spring Valley after a massive fire ripped through a building on Slinn Avenue last week, leaving dozens of residents homeless.
Three firefighters were hurt and others suffered from smoke inhalation while rescuing several people trapped inside the burning building at 21 Slinn Ave. It took 50 firefighters to put out the blaze.
The fire destroyed eight apartments, displacing 42 families. Firefighters are hoping to get about 75 percent of the tenants back home once the power is restored in the building, which is expected to happen next week.
Officials are investigating the cause of the fire, but believe it may be electrical in nature.
