Multiple Fire in Spring Valley
Devastating day in Rockland, Five Members of Family Perish, two of them Minors, in Fire in Spring Valley
Multiple fire departments rushed to a home on Lake Street in the Village of Spring Valley around 4 a.m. for reports of a fully-involved fire.
The growing fire had already engulfed much of the structure upon their arrival and prevented arriving fire units from accessing the residence where several people were reportedly trapped inside.
In addition to the deceased, county officials said another five people suffered injuries as well as one of the many responding firefighters. At least one of the victims suffered injuries from jumping out of a second story window.
The cause of the house fire is still under investigation.
Please keep the family and friends of the five individuals who perished today in your thoughts and prayers
