An inferno ripped through a private home on West Central Avenue, Friday afternoon. The fierce blaze destroyed the home, and according to initial report by investigators, it may have been started by a 4-year-old child left home alone. Ramapo Detective Sgt. John Lynch says the fire may have been started when the child was playing with matches.
The child was reportedly found in a daze, on the front lawn of the home, by a former fire chief who happened to be driving past and saw the blaze.
