THE BRONX - Several people have been left without a home following an overnight three-alarm fire in Concourse Village.
According to the FDNY, the flames started on the second story of 1228 College Ave. at around 2 a.m. and spread to two adjoining buildings. The fire marshal says the cause of the fire was holiday lights.
Firefighters were out in the snow and bitter cold for several hours before the blaze was finally put out. The fire chief says there were no frozen fire hydrants or any other problems getting water, despite the frigid temperatures.
Three families have been displaced, but are receiving help from the Red Cross, and no injuries were reported.
