Fire erupted early yesterday afternoon in a 7-floor high rise in Spring Valley. The Country Village Tower located at 101 Kennedy Drive, across from Spring Valley High School, was reported on fire around 1pm. Video posted to TheYeshivaWorld.com showed flames coming from a 7th floor apartment, and people were reportedly trapped inside at the time. The Journal News said 14 families living on the seventh floor were displaced, and several had to be rescued from the flames, including a two year-old. He and three others were taken to area hospitals. The cause of the fire was undetermined Wednesday and under investigation by a Spring Valley fire inspector.
