A residential house fire that was reported just after 9:40 this morning is under control now, Tarrytown Police report.
Loh area neighbor Jaime Echt, who shared these photos (some of them taken from the third floor of another neighbor's house), said the fire had caused serious damage to the home and half the roof was gone. The red colonial is made entirely of wood, she said.
One side of the house has a ladder truck from Elmsford fully extended, the other side has Tarrytown's Conqueror 37 extended, each with three men at work, spraying a combination of water and white retardant to finish the job.
The wood is still smoldering.
Neighbors report that an elderly couples lives in the house, who apparently were not home during a fire they believe began in the attic, though officials have not confirmed this.
Westchester County investigators are on the scene determining the cause of the blaze, along with Village Engineer Mike McGarvey, Ladies Auxiliary #7780 handing out water, and fire crews from Irvington, Sleepy Hollow, and Tarrytown's Union Hose #2.
