THE BRONX - Fire scorched a three-family home in Woodlawn Monday evening.

Officials say no one was hurt in the 236th Street fire, which began around 5 p.m., but the inside of the house was charred black.

Anthony Scalere, who lives on the second floor, says it was his downstairs neighbor who first spotted the flames.
