YONKERS, NY – June 30, 2015 — Yonkers Fire Department was called to attend a fire at 2 Landscape Place yesterday. One would think this was going to be a party with 14 companies and 65 Firefighters arriving at the scene yesterday, however it was a 3three-alarm fire requiring Mutual Aid be called to cover the rest of the City of Yonkers. This was a roast alright; and no one was happy to attend. The fire was extremely difficult to extinguish because of the location of the house. 2 Landscape Place is actually a 6-foot
alley with the rear yard off of Landscape Avenue with a severe grade change toward the rear of the property.
Eight adults had to be relocated due to the damage caused by the severity of the fire. Two dogs were rescued, but several Firefighters were injured on the scene of a fire which has warranted investigation. The CoY Building Department was on the scene with YFD officials. They have surmised and the plan is to quickly demolish the house. In its present condition, it is a hazard and prone to collapse.
