No Injuries in Greenburgh House Fire

This story has been updated to correct the location of Pheasant Run.

GREENBURGH, N.Y. - There were no injuries in a late morning fire in Greenburgh Tuesday.

Dr. Virendra Juthani said only his mother-in-law was at home when the fire broke out at their home in Pheasant Run, which is in Edgemont.

"She is fine, a little shaken up, but okay," Juthani said.

Greenville Fire Chief Dan Raferty said that firefighters were called at approximately 11:20 a.m with a report of smoke coming from the house.

Raferty said that the fire department arrived on the scene to find smoke pouring out a top floor window.

Around 20 firefighters battled the smoke and flames in an upstairs bedroom , Raferty said.

"The home has a residential sprinkler system and that helped extinguish the fire," Raferty said.

After the fire was put out in the bedroom, Raferty said the attic and spots behind walls were also cleared, but the family would not be able to stay in the house Tuesday night.

Juthani said that at the time of the blaze, he was having a propane gas-fired generator installed on the side of his home. Workers noticed the smoke coming from the windows. Raferty said it was unclear if the installation was the cause of the blaze, and that the cause of the fire was still under investigation.

Juthani, who with his family has lived in the home for more than 25 years, said there was extensive smoke and water damage throughout the home.
