In the early hours of Tuesday, October 11th a fire destroyed two buildings on upper Pike Street in Port Jervis. Firefighters responded quickly to the scene, which developed into a four alarm fire. Luckily nobody was seriously injured or killed in the blaze.
One of the buildings destroyed was a vacant property; the other building consisted of multi family homes and commercial offices.
Authorities have yet to determine what caused the fire.
