Firefighters battle fire, ice at Pelham Bay fire

PELHAM BAY - Fire marshals are investigating a Pelham Bay fire that injured at least six firefighters Thursday.

The three-alarm fire broke out around 12:49 p.m. at 3009 Westchester Ave. Firefighters took 80 minutes to extinguish the intense flames.

Officials blame the delay on frigid temperatures that froze the water from the hoses.
