ELMSFORD, N.Y. -- Elmsford and Greenburgh police and fire personnel are investigating the scene of a fire on Sears Avenue in Elmsford Sunday on a report of an unaccounted for young child who may have been in the home.
Four people were injured overnight after the fast-moving fire destroyed the roof and top floor of an Elmsford home located a few blocks from busy Route 9A.
