TOWN OF MONROE – An early morning explosion and fire at 60 Cromwell Road in the Town of Monroe injured nine people, three seriously. They were flown to Westchester Medical Center.

The fire, at Quaker Hill Bungalow Colony, a Hasidic camp for teenage boys, broke out around 12:30 this morning. The explosion occurred in bungalows 41 and 42, in the same building.

Neighbors said the boys, from Brooklyn, returned to the camp to the smell of gas. One of them opened a window and an explosion and fire broke out immediately.

Eight fire departments fought the blaze for some two hours. The cause is under investigation.
