YONKERS, N. Y. -- Workers on Monday started to take down two multi-family buildings in Yonkers destroyed by a four-alarm fire Sunday , as fire officials continue to investigate what caused the blaze that displaced several families, according to lohud.com.

Both buildings at 53 and 55 Herriot St. sustained major damage from Sunday's quick-moving fire, which appears to have started in 53 Herriot St. Yonkers fire officials, who were at the scene of demolition Monday, said it could take days to clean up the site, lohud.com reports.

The Red Cross, meanwhile, is working to find homes for the five families, a total of 17 people, who lived in the buildings. Firefighters, some of whom were injured fighting the fire, were able to save 51 Herriot, though it suffered heavy damage, lohud.com says.
