Crow Hill Road Home Severely Damaged by Fire
A home in New Castle was extensively damaged by a fire that burned early Friday morning, according to Mount Kisco Fire Chief Tom Jackson.

The house, located at 9 Crow Hill Road, was the site of construction and nobody was home, Jackson explained. However, the owner and New Castle police discovered the fire after responding to a burglar alarm activation at the property, the chief stated.

Mount Kisco's fire department responded around 1:04 a.m. and did not leave the area, which is in its corresponding fire district, until around 5:30 a.m., according to Jackson. Bedford Hills and Millwood firefighters joined, he added, while Pleasantville and Katonah firefighters were on stand by.

The structure was heavily damaged, according to Jackson, with the majority sustaining fire damage. The fire was battled amid frigid weather.

Two firefighters had minor injuries, Jackson said. A Mount Kisco firefighter, had a shoulder injury while a Bedford Hills firefighter slipped. They were each treated at Northern Westchester Hospital, the chief added.

The cause of the fire had not been determined but it is not believed to be intentional, according to Jackson.
