The Spring Valley PD, Spring Valley FD, Spring Hill EMS, and RPS, were dispatched to 22 Prospect Street in Spring Valley for reports of a structure fire with possible people trapped, Sunday afternoon. Upon their arrival, they found the fire to be in a small bungalow behind the home. The fire destroyed the bungalow with a garage that was converted into an apartment.
The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Rockland County Sheriff’s Arson Squad, but officials do not believe the cause to be suspicious.
With the density of the community and the close proximity of the houses, firefighters said the blaze could have been a lot worse.
On firefighter suffered a minor injury, but was treated on the scene and was not transported to the hospital
