FDNY battle large house fire in Soundview
A Soundview house fire has left multiple families without a home overnight, officials say.
Firefighters responded to the house fire on Rosedale Avenue at around 11 p.m. Monday.
The owners of the home lived there since 2017 and included three brothers and their parents who lived on the second floor and another family downstairs who rented the space.
The owners say they were coming back from praying at the mosque for Ramadan when the fire started. Officials say the fire started on the second floor, but it's unclear how.
Both families are OK, but the home has been completely destroyed.
