SULLIVAN COUNTY, N.Y. -- A Condominium complex goes up in flames in Sullivan County on Saturday, forcing as many as 100 people out of their homes.
Fire officials said so far, 20 acres have burned at the Grandview Palace Condominiums in Loch Sheldrake. Investigators from Orange and Sullivan Counties are still on the scene trying to figure out how the fire started.
Dozens of people are now at an emergency shelter set up by the red cross at Sullivan County Community College. Many said they lost everything in the fire, and they’re left with only the clothes they escaped with.
Grandview resident, Betty Sahm said, “We have no car. We have no money. No credit cards. I don’t, we don’t know what to do. And I can’t get my medication.”
The fire is expected to smolder for a couple days. The college said it will continue to run the shelter until residents get back on their feet.
