Funeral held for man killed in Yonkers fire

Family and friends said their final goodbyes to a man killed in a fire in Yonkers last week.



A funeral was held for Robert Reilly at the Monastery Church of the Sacred Heart in Yonkers Saturday morning.



As News 12 reported, the 62-year-old was found dead on the fifth floor of the building, located at 1 Hawley Terrace.



The cause of the fire is still under investigation but some residents say they never heard fire alarms ringing and question if the fire alarms were working at the time.



A fundraiser was held Friday to help the 100 people who were displaced by the incident.
