A three-alarm fire left four cats "unaccounted" for and a Somers woman homeless.
More than 75 firefighters battled the blaze that started around 9:44 p.m. Tuesday in the basement of a home on Anita Road, said the Somers Fire Department.
The fire, which spread to the first and second floor, left the homeowner, Nancy Haggerty, a lifetime Somers resident, without any belongings and missing her four cats.
Haggerty is known as a supporter of the town and a lover of animals.
To help, friends have started a GoFundMe page that has raised more than $6,000 to date.
According to the fire department, firefighters faced tough conditions with heavy fire and problems accessing the home.
The fire was finally brought under control around 1:30 a.m., the fire department said.
The department received help from multiple agencies including Yorktown Heights, Goldens Bridge, Croton Falls, Bedford Hill, Katonah, and the Mohegan lake fire departments, Westchester County Cause and Origin Team, county DES Battalion 13, Somers and Westchester EMS.
