Handicapped by lack of water and difficulty in getting fire fight­ ing apparatus half a mile up a rutted private \road\ of Rte. 100, just south of Pines Bridge, more than 100 firemen from three com­ munities found the bungalow a mass of flames and concentrated their efforts on protecting two nearby cottages. The bungalow was occupied by Mrs. Alice Reiniger and her chil­ dren—Guy, fourteen: Douglas, ten, and Nina, three. They fled the structure after a faulty oorta- ble gasoline stove set off the blaze at about 8:30 p.m. A next- door neighbor, Mrs. Julie Burns, phoned in an alarm to police in Yorktown Heights and Mount Kis­ co, who notified firemen. The Mill­ wood Fire Company was sum­ moned to the scene. Firemen under command of Chief Fred Ducady of Yorktown Heights remained on the scene for several hours wetting down smouldering beams—all that re­ mained of the one-story home.
