YONKERS -

A fast-moving fire displaced about 60 people in Yonkers overnight, many of them children.

Fire officials say flames broke out at a three-story multifamily home at 42 Oak St. around 5:15 a.m.

The fire was so intense that it spread to the building next door.

The cause of the fire has not been determined.

The Red Cross set up an emergency reception center at the Nodine Community Center for the victims.
