YONKERS, N.Y. -- A five-alarm fire that broke out in a row of stores on Broadway in Yonkers late Thusday night put a 200-year-old nearby church in danger before it was saved.

The fire, a 5 South Broadway, was reported at 11 p.m. Thursday in a row of stores that includes a McDonald's and 99-cent store.
