ORIGINAL REPORT:

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.

Sears Avenue was cordoned off by yellow police tape and several emergency vehicles and fire trucks filled the street on front of the home.

Investigators rummaged through the top floor of the building into the noon hour Sunday, tossing burned materials and searching for any victims.

Neighbors said they believed there were several people inside the home when the fire started, including a baby who was said to be on one of the upper floors. Elmsford Police said that they were still investigating.
